Question about HP Mini 1000 Netbook

1 Answer

Downloaded programs cannot access internet

I have an HP Mini 1101, I've had it since Christmas 2009.
My problem is that I cannot get to the internet using any application that requires internet access. I think it might be a firewall problem, but I've allowed all settings, and I don't have any anti-virus installed. But, I can use my internet browser "Google Chrome," without any problems.
Any help?

    Start your computer in safe mode and see if they will connect that way. To do this, shut down the computer. When it is off, hit the power button to turn it on and immediately start hitting F8 repeatedly. This will bring you to the Advanced Options Boot Menu. Use the arrow keys on your keyboard to select Safe Mode with Networking and hit enter. If it asks to select an Operating System, just hit enter. Once it asks you to log on, log onto your normal user. Let me know if the applications can access the internet in safe mode.

    I cannot even go into safe mode, you see, I've tried to install a dual boot of Ubuntu on my machine, and it won't allow me to go into safe mode or even restore the pc, and I've unistalled Ubuntu, and that stupid little screen is still there that says, choose an OS.

    Is that helpful?

Google chrome has over ridden IE8 - use google chrome to access and download firefox - alternative to IE8 - then after you've got it installed go to control pannel and uninstall google chrome.

To change the background on your hp mini you will need to download stardock mycolors. It is a free and safe program I found on google. Once downloaded start up the program and go to wallpaper. All of your picture's in your "My Pictures" will be there. Now just pick a picture and hit apply, you now have a new background.

Not quite sure how 'Last Christmas' is 2009. If you have downloaded the videos to your PC, there is certainly free editing and burning software available.

You could try to re-install the graphics driver of your notebook.
I think it should resolve the issue.
Contact HP and tell them to provide you with the drivers.
