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

When i try to play farmville or watch a video on my e-machines laptop, the page will say it is loaded but nothing with be in the screen where it should be showing my farm or my video. This just started...

It's probably just due to poor connectivity or slow internet connection. Try it again later and see if it's still there.

If it's still there, Try deleting browsing history in your browser.
If you're using Internet Explorer (IE),
- Open up any IE window
- And then restart your computer.

You can also try RESETTING Internet Explorer. It will put all of the IE's settings to the default but it will not erase your bookmarks.
- Just open up any IE window
- Go to TOOLS> INTERNET OPTIONS> A window will popup.
- Go to ADVANCED Tab and click RESET.

You can also try using SYSTEM RESTORE to go back to a date where you were able to use your computer normally.
- Just click START
- Hit ENTER and then just follow the steps.

If that doesn't work, there may be a third party software that's causing the issue or it could be a virus attack.

Hope this helps.

Internet problem

Hi, Try deleting the temporary files on the temporary folders. Disconnect to your internet connection. Open up internet explorer browser. On the upper right of that page you should be able to see Tools. Select that. Look for Internet Options, which is usually at the bottom of that list. Under browsing history of the GENERAL Tab. Select settings. Now Select View files. Another window will come up. This is the Temporary folder. Delete all of the items present here. Now, try if the issue you are having still exist. If it does you need to reset the Internet Explorer.

Resetting the Internet Explorer:
1. Disconnect from the internet
2. Open up Internet Explorer again.
3. Click on Tools again.
4. Select Internet Options again
5. Go under the Advanced tab - Usually when you open up the Internet Options, the default tab is on General
6. Under Advanced tab Click on Reset

Try testing it again. Hope this helps you.
