The most common cause of this issue is not restarting the computer following the installation of Internet Explorer 7. It seems that if you do not restart Windows immediately after the installation has completed, it causes some side-effects, particularly the error you describe. This may not have been your fault, as the Internet Explorer 7 update may have been automatically downloaded and installed from the Windows Update website. After the update was installed, and you were prompted to restart, you might have elected not to restart (as you did not realise the implications of such) and thus now the program does not work correctly. In this case, the workaround for the issue is to uninstall Internet Explorer 7, through the “Add/Remove Programs” control panel, and then reinstall Internet Explorer 7. Make sure you restart the computer once the installation has completed!

Apart from reinstalling Internet Explorer 7 I was unable to find any other workarounds for the problem. Some users have reported having to reinstall Windows, but this is only in extreme cases. In the worst case, you may have to just uninstall Internet Explorer 7 and go back to using Internet Explorer 6. However, I imagine you might like the new Internet Explorer 7 features such as tabbed browsing. Should this be the case, and you are unable to resolve the problem with Internet Explorer 7, perhaps another alternative is to try Mozilla Firefox (http://www.mozilla.com/firefox). This is a very popular free open-source web browser, with many of the same features (tabbed browsing, RSS integration, etc.). This could be a useful compromise if you are still unable to get Internet Explorer 7 to work correctly.

Upgrading ram in a dell 5150 do I need to install 2 menory boards of the same size at the same time. I have two 256 mb and I am trying to install 1 512 mb to expand the menory to 1 gb It works for awhile...


you have 4 memory connectors. the maximum memory the computer supports is 4 GB. it is recomended that you install in pairs, for some reasons, but i have installed and i have seen it doesnot matter at all. you can go ahead and install the memory for whatever size on the computer. make sure the bus speed should be either 400 or 533 MHZ. and yoou never explained the error message. when you upgrade the ram you will get a message the system memory has changed press f1 to continue or f2 for setup just press f1. if the error message is in windows after you click on your name it has nothing to do with your memory. if its before that. than try to reseat the memory. installing memory in non pairs doesnot cause any problem most of the time. explain the error message only than i can guide you furthur.

You need first to configure the linksys router to work with your road runner cable internet, if you have the setup CD for the router you can use to configure the router but if not you need to manually configure the router to work with Road runner cable internet by accessing the router setup page, if you're not aware on how to manually configure the router to work with road runner you can call this number so a Tech can walk you through with the process 1-877-787-8749...

Connection Problems


If you are able to send and recieve emails then your dial-up modem is working. For some reason your "Earthlink Browser" is looking for a high speed connection,(like DSL or Road Runner cable). Easiest step to take would be to re-install your Earthlink dial-up software program, but remove existing program under "Control Panel" (Add or Remove Programs).
