You have probably set up your system to use DHCP - that is non-static IPs.

Right Click on your connection, go to properties, click IPv4, properties again
if it says get settings automatically then you are using dynamic IP addressing DHCP... this can cause problems,

To set up your Static IP on your computer
you will need your routers default gateway
you get that by typing ipconfig at the command prompt... found under Start menu ->Accessories, Command Prompt

Type in IPconfig
look for default gateway - write it down.
Go to your ISPs web site and see if you can find their DNS server IP addresses -or search under google - as a last resort use these

62.24.199.13
62.24.199.23

All DNS servers are public and free to use.

Then enter your Static IP which is derived from your default gateway. So if your default gateway is 192.168.1.1 then your IP can be anything between
192.168.1.2 and 92.168.1.254
Subnet = 255.255.255.0
Enter your default gateway
Enter your DNS server IPs and you should be good to go....

Remember if it all goes horribly wrong for some reason (It shouldn't) then just return and reset everything to get settings to automatic and all will return unrtil another solution is discovered.

I need Product Key of my PC


Did you have Windows XP Professional on your laptop before you downloaded it from the internet? If not, that's your first problem.

When you reinstall or download a operating system you must use the one that is on the Certificate Of Authentication (COA) Sticker on the bottom of your laptop or inside the battery case. That's your key on it (the series of 5 letters and numbers).

If you use someone else's disk to install or download like you did you must make sure that it is the same operating system as yours. In other words, if your COA says Windows XP Home, then you can't install Windows XP Professional because when it comes time to activate it will fail.

Borrow a operating system disk that is the same as your COA from neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and reinstall windows. When it asks for the key, use the key that is on your COA Sticker then it will activate.

If you have to take it to a computer repair shop they should install the operating system for $60 or less if you have a valid COA Sticker.

No Connection


Hi Norm,

First, try a different USB device in the USB Ports, to make sure they are not disabled.

Uninstall the DWL-G120 Drivers, in the add/remove programs. Unplug the device. Download and install this program.
http://www.nirsoft.net/utils/usb_devices_view.html

Click on Options, check each one. Click on all instance of the USB device you want to remove, (Marked Disconnected.), and under File, click on Uninstall Selected devices You can hold the CTRL key to select more than one.
Once they are all cleared, Open My Computer and go to C drive. Delete any folders left over from the DWL-G120.
Reboot, and reinstall the drivers, and plug in the device.
If that don't work, you can try a different USB port for it.
Good Luck!

This is generallyhow your format the hard disk and install Windows XP.
First you need a Windows XP Home or Professional installation CD and theproduct installation code.
Boot up with the Windows installation CD start and follow the instructions toinstall Windows.
Next Delete the existing Windows partition.
Next Create a new partition.
Next format this new partition - Format the partition in NTFS not a quick format.This will prepare the Windows for a clean install.
Next create a User(name) and company name (normally Home is all you need).
Further into the installation, you will be required to put in the Installationcode. During the finalstages of installation you need to create an User or Users that will use thiscomputer. When you finishedinstalling Windows you need to install the laptop's device drivers. You need touse a computer with Internet access to download these drivers from the laptopmanufacturer's WEB site and install these drivers on your laptop.
Next connect a LAN cable to the LAN port from your computer to your DSL orcable modem and you need to Activate the Windows installation on the MicrosoftWEB site.
Next up need to upgrade Windows from the Microsoft WEB site including Servicepack.
Next you need to install your programs

Dear, i reinstall window xp professional on first it asked me product key which i put after window install it again asked activation code. when i click on it window open and bring a screen with different...


> I reinstall Windows XP Professional .. it asked me [for] product key.

What CD-ROM did you use -- the CD-ROM supplied by the manufacturer (Dell, HP, eMachines, ACER) or a "non-genuine" copy on a CD-recordable disk?

Did you copy the product-key from the decal on the side-panel of the desktop
(or the decal on the bottom of the laptop) ?

Were you connected to the Internet when it "again" asked for the activation code?
If so, Windows has connected to Microsoft, to compare your product-key to a list
of "bad" ("compromised") license-keys, and it found a MATCH, indicating that you
have a "non-genuine" copy of Windows XP.

Please supply more details.

Solution of error code 1002


Click Start menu, and then click the Run icon.
In the small box that Opens, type the three letters: cmd then click the OK button.
In the command prompt window that just opened (a black background and white text), type the following commands, pressing the ENTER key on your keyboard afterwards:

regsvr32 msxml3.dll

Now type the word: exit and the window will close.
Now Reboot and try and Microsoft Windows Update again....

If it fails with the 0x8007007E error again try Step 2

Step 2) - Windows XP Only...

Now lets update your system with the latest Microsoft XML Parser (MSXML) version 3.0 SP4

Download Here (use the msxml3usa.msi for the English language version.)

Notes....

a) You will need to reinstall MSXML 3.0 SP4 if you upgraded to Windows XP from a computer running one of the following operating systems:

- Windows 98

- Windows ME

- Windows NT 4.0

b) Windows 2003 server
ships with version 3.0 - SP4 and so you do not need to install it.

c) Occasionally, setup may need to reboot the computer but fails to inform the user. Therefore reboot your machine just in case. Then try Windows Update again...

d) To install a localized (e.g. English) version of MSXML 3.0 SP4 on a system different from the previously installed version/locale (e.g. French) of MSXML 3.0 SP4, complete the following steps:

Unregister the existing installation package by executing the following command in a Command Prompt window:

msiexec /qn /x {45534579-B75B-4A42-953B-2EF8E1DEB4F3}

Now install the new localized version of MSXML 3.0 SP4.

If it fails with the 0x8007007E error again try Step 3


Step 3) - Windows XP Only...

Scan For Missing/Corrupt System Files...

Windows XP comes with a wonderful tool called System File Checker (SFC) It scans and verifies the versions of all protected system files after you restart your computer... However it can sometimes miss a problem, so we can run the tool now to replace CABINET.DLL and URLMON.DLL if there is a problem with them:

To Do This:

Click Start menu, and then click the Run icon. In the small box that Opens, type the three letters: cmd then click the OK button. In the command prompt window that just opened (a black background and white text), type the following command:

SFC /scannow

and then click OK


You must be logged on as a member of the Administrators group to run SFC..

You will need your Windows XP CD during this procedure if SFC needs to get an original file. Please remember that Windows XP can have multiple instances of a .DLL file and remember which version is for which program.

Notes....

I have been asked if it is possible to have a "progress meter" show when SFC runs... This is the registry hack you need. PLEASE do not go messing with your registry if you do NOT know what you are doing!

System Key: [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon]

Value Name: SFCShowProgress

Data Type: REG_DWORD (DWORD Value)

Value Data: (0 = disabled, 1 = enabled)



IMPORTANT: This article will cure the 0x8007007E problem for many of you. However if it does NOT then I would love to here from you. Or, did YOU try something else that worked? Then email me the fix too!

You may also find these error codes useful - for future reference, especially when trying to figure out error messages in the Windows Update log! (They are only given here as a guide to general problems and will require further research on your part to resolve the particular problem you may be having.):

How to install windows OS on Samsung N128 netbook


My Windows XP installation has reached its half-life. (You do know that Windows has a half-life, don’t you? Every installation of Windows naturally degrades along a logarithmic curve until it becomes annoying, then unbearable, then unusable. Each successive revision of Windows has featured a slightly longer half-life. Back in the day, Windows 95 would last me about 3 months, while my copy of Windows XP has lasted me almost 9. I’m not bitter; when you realize that you’re measuring on a logarithmic scale, a factor of 3 improvement is really quite impressive.)
Still, the fact remains that my Windows XP laptop can no longer (a) print, (b) sleep, or (c) change network settings without crashing. This is not multiple choice; it can’t do any of those things. It’s time for a clean re-install.
  1. Back up entire d: drive to iMac upstairs. rsync rocks.
  2. Find Windows XP install disc.
  3. Reboot with Windows XP install disc.
  4. Asked for product activation. Curse Microsoft.
  5. Search my house in vain for my original, 100% legitimate, retail Windows XP box.
  6. Reboot.
  7. Search control panels in vain for a window, dialog, tab, or pane that displays my current product key.
  8. Search Google for “windows xp get current product key”.
  9. Find a utility on a cracker web page in Russia that displays the current product key. This is one of the more lame utilities, since most of the good ones allow you to change it. I don’t wish to change it; I actually have a perfectly good product key, I just don’t know what it is.
  10. Reboot with Windows XP install disc.
  11. Reboot repeatedly as required.
  12. Boot screen. Choose between “Windows XP Professional” and “Windows XP Professional”. Brilliant. Pick one. The wrong one. Boot into fucked Windows XP install. Hard reboot. Pick the right one. Make mental note to hack boot.ini later.
  13. “Welcome to Windows XP. You have no useful programs and no internet access. You have 30 days left for activation. Would you like to activate now?” Yes, I would, but I have no internet access.
  14. Unnecessarily loud and cheerful startup noises. Make mental note to turn off all sounds later.
  15. Search the “Network and Internet Connections” wizards in vain for some way to set up my Linksys wireless card. Having never done a clean install of XP (I previously upgraded from Windows 2000), and having been moderately impressed by the new wireless networking features in XP, I naively assumed this would “just work”. Silly rabbit.
  16. Search my house for my Linksys wireless card driver install disc. Find the install disc that came with the old card, that broke and was replaced by the new-and-improved version 3.0 card. Wonder if that will suffice.
  17. Fight with the “Add New Hardware Wizard” trying to install the obviously inferior drivers off this disc.
  18. Wonder where the “Device Manager” is hiding.
  19. Find the “Device Manager”. Right-click on the unknown device, “Linksys_Instant_Wireless_Card”. Update driver. “Windows was unable to locate a driver for this device. Would you like to search on the internet?” Yes, I’d love to, but I can’t, you moron. Install driver from specific location. Specify WIN2000 folder on old-and-inferior install disc.
  20. “This driver is not digitally signed.” OK.
  21. “This driver may cause your computer to become unstable.” OK.
  22. “This driver may anally rape *********** while pouring sugar down your gas tank.” OK.
  23. Nothing. No connection, no internet access, no acknowledgment of any device whatsoever.
  24. Reboot.
  25. Doesn’t work.
  26. “Take a tour of Windows XP!” I am.
  27. Reboot.
  28. Doesn’t work.
  29. Dig out old wired PCMCIA card. Take computer upstairs. Plug directly into switch. cmd. ipconfig. We have an IP address. ping www.google.com. We have name resolution and internet access.
  30. Fire up Internet Explorer. runonce.msn.com. No. www.linksys.com. Support. Downloads. WPC11. Windows XP. Linksys.com rocks.
  31. Insert Linksys wireless card.
  32. Back to Device Manager.
  33. Uninstall old-and-inferior driver.
  34. Update driver.
  35. “This driver is not digitally signed.” OK.
  36. “This driver may cause your computer to become unstable.” OK.
  37. “This driver may…” OK.
  38. cmd. ipconfig. We have internet access.
  39. “Add your .NET Passport to Windows XP!” No.
  40. Fire up Internet Explorer. www.msn.com. No. www.mozilla.org. Download Mozilla.
  41. Realize I should create an “f8dy” user because it will make my life easier later.
  42. Create “f8dy” as an administrator. Log out. Log in.
  43. Install Mozilla. Yes, I would like to make you my default browser. The world is happiness and glee.
  44. “Take a tour of Windows XP!” Sigh.
  45. “30 days left for activation!” Click. Yes, I would like to activate Windows over an active internet connection, now that I have one. No, I would not like to register with Microsoft. Yes, I have read the privacy statement and agree to give up my computer, my civil rights, and my first-born child. I wasn’t using my civil rights anyway.
  46. Back to Mozilla. Set up IMAP server. Set up SMTP server. Set up LDAP directories. Fiddle with endless settings. Ooh, 1.5 alpha has auto-login scripts in Chatzilla. Make mental note to get on IRC when this is all done and ***** about it to a bunch of Linux-loving hippies.
  47. Search Google for “windows xp tweakui”.
  48. Download TweakUiPowertoySetup.exe. Run TweakUiPowertoySetup.exe. “The procedure entry point GetDllDirectoryW could not be located in the dynamic link library KERNEL32.dll”
  49. Dig. Dig. Dig. Aha. TweakUI requires Windows XP Service Pack 1.
  50. Fire up Internet Explorer again. windowsupate.microsoft.com. “Do you want to install and run Windows Update V4 Control?” Yes. “Always trust content from Microsoft Corporation?” No.
  51. “Windows Update has found 39 critical updates and service packs.” Install now.
  52. “Service Pack 1 must be installed separately from other updates.” OK.
  53. Yes, I agree to bend over, grease up, and accept the End User License Agreement.
  54. Wait. Time passes.
  55. Wait. Time passes.
  56. Wait. Time passes. It is getting dark. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.
  57. Reboot.
  58. “Take a tour of Windows XP!”
  59. “Add your .NET Passport to Windows XP!”
  60. Fire up Internet Explorer. “Windows Update has found 26 critical updates.” This we call progress. Install now.
  61. Wait. Time passes. Reboot.
  62. “Take a tour of Windows XP!”

If you have IE6, click on START, SETTINGS, CONTROL PANEL, ADD REMOVE PROGRAMS, ADD REMOVE WINDOWS COMPONENTS, and uninstall IE (Internet Explorer). Reboot. Go back and reinstall IE. You may need the original XP CD. Borrow one from a friend if you can.
