Question about HP Pavilion 533w (P9859AR#ABA) PC Desktop

1 Answer

Internet hesitation Hi, I have a problem with my HP internet connection. I am running XP Home and using both I.E. and Firefox. When I have been idle for maybe a couple minutes, the connection won't respond for about 30 seconds but once it kicks on, it works fine until I let it sit idle for a minute again (like enough time to read a news article on a page). Then I click on a link and it hesitates again for about 30 seconds before it connects. It does this in both programs (I.E. and Firefox), however my laptop, which is on the same connection, does not have this problem (laptop running win2k pro). Oh, and it's 700k comcast cable internet if you need to know that. Thanks!

Cannot connect to the internet with pc, can connect with my laptop wireless. using windows vista but niether internet explorer or mozilla firefox can connect.


First check your network adapter settings )make sure that it is set to 'obtain ip address automatically'). In network and sharing center, make sure that you are not using a public network. Also, in control panel, internet options on the connections tab, make sure that use a proxy server is not checked in LAN Settings.

My Gateway 504 GR won't play WSOP or most Reel Slot games. How can i play newer games on my pc? 2002 version Windows XP Home, 915 chipset, Intel proc. 4 cpu 3.00GHZ 512mb 3000mhz. Thanks


Hello there,
The image below indicates the minimum and recommended system requirements of WSOP most probably you will be able to play the game. The problem might be your Adobe Flash Player or your Internet Explorer version. If your Windows Xp Home is genuine you might consider updating or download a Mozilla Firefox.
The links for Adobe and Firefox are located below the image.

Flash Player
Mozilla Browser
From what I know Windows XP by default have an Internet Explorer v.6.0 that is why you need to update your Windows. by the way you have to download Flash player if you have Internet Explorer v.7. if this does not work try the step below
1. Download the Mozilla Firefox browser and install setup 5.0.1exe. 2. Download Flash Player it will automatically update your Flash.

Hopefully this information helps.
Thank you for using FixYa.

Im using an upgraded version of windows xp pro with internet explorer.facebook comes up but nothings on the page except home,profile,etc.i have messeges in my inbox but can't read them.my profile pops up...


Here is my advice : Just go to www.microsoft.com and download internet explorer again and install it , then reboot your system . I'm sure that this will solve the problem . any way , why don't you try other internet communication softwares like ( firefox or google chrome) those both are great also . I advice you to have more than one internet communication software . I already have three just in case if one of them is corrupted . I have ( Internet explorer and firefox and google chrome ) . just try the idea and you'll be satisfied with the result .
good luck .

Unable to get any Internet access with IE7, IE8, Firefox etc...


XP or Vista ?
Go to Network - Properties - the network card. Make sure you have "Get network address automatically"
DOS box type ipconfig /all what's it say.
There are viruses that can kill TCP/IP
Get a copy of LSPfix It will check your TCP/IP programs.
I did have one XP machine that lost it's network setting, could never get it running without a reinstall.
If Linyx works, it's not the card.

Yes it is best to format the PC and reload the OS again although I would suggest that you load the latest version of the WinXP family as single boot OS and work. It should give lesser problems with a single genuine anti-virus installed.......sodeep

I'm having problems running programs on my HP pavilion dv2000. The programs having problems are: Google Chrome setup Firefox 3.0.1 Nortel Contivity VPN The problem is that all 3 programs cannot...


The problem looks with the Nortel VPN. VPN software blocks all other Internet connections when started. This way they create a secure, encrypted tunnel from your pc to the destination pc and does not allow the other connections -Firefox, Chrome etc- to perform. The non performing Internet applications mean less threats online (e.g. nobody can exploit a flaw in Firefox and reach your VPN connection).

If the problem is that the browsers do not function even after you stop the VPN connection, it may be that the VPN software is still running in the background. You can make Ctrl + Shift + Esc to bring up the running processes and see if the VPN is running in the background. If yes, turn it off.
