Question about Compaq Presario 700 470024-192 Notebook

1 Answer

Compaq Q60-615DX has reverted to earlier Windows xp edition.

Just bought Laptop listed above and having connection issues to either wired dsl router and also wireless router. When I start-up the screen comes up as a previous format and not the new windows 7 default that came with laptop originally. I ran a back-up file disk but didn't seem to help. Certain programs such as WLAN and built-in wire internet set-up aren't working anymore and also sound and brightness controls aren't working either. Seems like the laptop reverted to a desk-top status.
Also the screen appearance is like maybe xp instead of the new windows 7. I'm not computer savvy and could sure use the step-by-step help from start-up to root/boot screen(BIOS) and beyond......
Thanks,
Paul

I would take it back where you bought it.
If you are having multiple problems like this, and there is nothing of value on the hard drive, i would re install windows.
The appearance looks like a graphics driver problem, or maybe you need to right click on desktop / personalize and see if you are on windows classic theme

Slow lan connection


it is most likely because the usb port in your computer is a version 1.1 not 2.0 which is much faster. i have the same issue on my desktop. the only way to update it is to buy a new usb port and card.

Use Crossloop. Each session is encrypted and doesn't require turning off firewalls in your routers. You will have to give it permission to run in Vista and XP, but it works and I've used it many times.

If this is what you're already using, go to their help page to resolve the problem.

Hope this helps.

Apple user attempting to fix dad's dell laptop windows xp home edition


I'm confused because you say your trying to make a lan connection on the dell laptop but your connecting it via firewire into a DSL modem. doing this method would be a WAN connection and not a LAN connection. To make a lan connection you need to connect the laptop via network cable (or wireless connection) to a router that is connected to your actiontek dsl modem.

I can help you connect the laptop to the internet but 1st i need to know if your trying to connect it to a router or did you want to do a wan connection from the dsl modem.

Thanks,
Brad Nelson

Trying to network xp pc to wireless laptop


Right click on the drive you want to share. Ex: C:\Vol-xx = name. In the pop up window click Sharing & Security. This needs done to all the drives you want access too. To share a printer. Everyone must have the printer drivers installed. The Pc that has a direct connection to the printer must also Share the printer on the network. Open Printer & Faxes, highlight the printer you want to share. Click File than click Sharing follow windows instructions.
Small suggestion regards to the wireless side of the network. Suggest you setup security so others close too you can not tap into your network. (common).
