Question about PC Laptops

Cannot connect to internet

I have  Dell Inspiron 8100.  I haven't used it in a while, it runs Windows ME.  I am unable to connect to the internet using IE.  It is a wired connection and i know the CAT 5 cable works, as i plugged it into another computer.  I have tried the set up wizard but that doesn't fix it.

I would check to make sure that your network card is not disabled. If it is not, then when you plug the cable in to the computer, look at the plug. There should be a couple of lights on it. One should be solid and the other may be flickering. If you dont see this where the plug goes in, there may be a problem with the jack itself which usually requires a motherboard replacement. Good luck!

Hi

Thank you for your query

What you are explaining is a classic windows loop

Unfortunatley the only way around it is to reformat the PC

Please do the following

1) Simply put your recovery CD provided with your laptop into your DVD/CD rom drive and then allow the laptop to restart

Then simply follow the instructions on screen

If this has been useful please leave postive feedback/vote/testimonial - Thank You Again

So u can connect to the router, but you arent allowet to access the internet?
The router gave your dell a new ip-number, but it dident gave you access to the net. You ned to do the settings in your router manual, let the router give your dell full access.

Dell Inspiron 8100 won't boot


Send it in to a repair facility, usually runs 80-130 online through ebay. Inspirons are known for blowing fuses/resistors. This may have happened, but either way if you pull the new battery and it dont work still with charger or vice versa you have a power issue on the motherboard.

Good Luck!

Run a system restore. You may need to go back two or three restore points before it fixes the problem, but the restore should do the trick. Try this, let me know, and if the problem persists, then we'll try a different approach.
