Question about Dell Inspiron XPS M140 Notebook

1 Answer

Networking problem I have a Dell notebook and I'm attempting to share files with a Dell desktop. I have networked the two computers and I'm able to access teh laptop's shared files from the desktop, but I can not do so from the laptop. When I attempt to view workgroup members from the laptop's My Network Places, I get an error message: "Mshome is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact the administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. The network path was not found." Please advise. Thanks.

Make it sure if the user you used in the laptop is administrator right because you need the administrator right to access some network computer. check also if the desktop share folder is share with full access it maybe the right is read only.

Where is the wifi


Turn on your computer and locate the Wi-Fi icon. This could be located on the upper row on a laptop it will have the radiation look ((())) Make sure its pressed on. Usually a wifi enabled phone, computer, or whatever device, will recognize if there is wifi access near you. Most new HP (Hewlett-Packard) Pavilion notebook computers as of August 2010 include an internal wireless networking adapter, used to connect to a wireless network or router. Once connected to a router, the computer can connect to the Internet or other computers on the same network. If the wireless networking adapter is not allowing the computer to connect to a router, there are several steps that can be used to remedy the problem. Ensure that the wireless network adapter is turned on. Most HP Pavilion notebook computers have a switch that allows you to turn off the wireless adapter. The switch typically is located on the side of the computer or on the front. Ensure that the router and modem are plugged in and functioning. Ensure that the lights are illuminated on each device. Attempt to connect wirelessly using another computer, if possible, to test whether the connection problem is with the router or modem. Unplug the router and modem. Leave the power off for approximately 30 to 60 seconds, then turn them on again. Update the wireless network adapter driver using the computer's "Device Manager." To access the Device Manager, right-click on "Computer" or "My Computer," depending on the version of Windows, and click "Device Manager" from the left-side bar, or from the tab labeled "Hardware." Once in the Device Manager, expand the section labeled "Networking Devices" and right-click on the wireless network adapter. Click "Update driver software" to begin searching for an update. If an update is found, follow the onscreen instructions to install the update. Reinstall the wireless networking adapter if updating the driver does not remedy the problem. To reinstall the wireless adapter driver, right-click on it from the Device Manager and select "Uninstall." Once the device is removed from the computer, restart the computer. Once Windows loads, it will automatically detect and reinstall the driver. Run the Windows 7 Diagnostic Tool (if the computer uses the Windows 7 operating system) to diagnose any networking issues the operating system may be able to correct. To access the Windows 7 Diagnostic Tool, open the "Start" menu and type "Network" into the search field. Click "Network and Sharing Center" and then select "Diagnose and repair" from the left-side bar. The Windows 7 Diagnostic Tool will automatically run and will attempt to repair and establish the wireless connection. Attempt to manually connect to the wireless network. Open the "Network and Sharing Center" and click "Setup a new connection or network." Enter the network name, security type and network key into the text boxes and click "Next." If successful, click "Use the existing network" and then click "Connect." The network name, security type and network key can be obtained from the network administrator or by logging into the router. For help logging into the router, consult the instructions included with the router. You only need to do the following if the driver cant be installed. Make sure you Ethernet/internet is enabled in bios restart your computer during the boot up process you will see on your screen a certain key to press to enter set up (BIOS) press and hold that key to enter bios using arrow keys navigate to integrated peripherals look for SiS On Chip Pci Device press enter scroll to SiS 10/100m press enter make sure its "Enabled"imake sure key scroll http://support.microsoft.com/

Ok so I think my computer has a virus? last night it was running just fine, and than when i tried to turn it on this morning, it wouldnt boot up. A loading screen would appear as if the computer was about...


The good news is that there are ways around viruses. First thing, Do you have a computer that can get online at all? If so then here is what I would suggest. Mcafee has a few tool for finding & removing viruses called Avert Stinger.

Download this file to either the root c: or an external drive (flash, floppy, etc) Then reboot you computer when it is booting press f5 or f8 (depending on operating system) to get into safe mode with networking. Then run this tool from safe mode with networking. I have found this tool removes almost all viruses. Let me know if this works for you.

My Advent 4211 netbook connects wirelessly to the Internet through my Desktop and a Belkin router. How do I allow the netbook to see the files in the desktop?


if you ran your network wizard to get the internet access shared then you should be able to share your files too.
and folders the same way ,

go to my network device,
veiw network computers,
if you can see the computers desk top then
go to Shared folders and try to see if your folders have been shared open something.

If you can see the desktop and not open the shared folders then run the network wizard again,shutdown and restart,to save your settings,
to share files between both machines you will need to drag the file into my shared folders or rightclick on the file your sharing and click on sharing,follow the prompts to share and that should fix your problem.

Please rate me thanks MISTERDJ

Network Vista Wireless Laptop to XP Desktop & Print Documents


On the desktop machine - go to the printers folder, right click the icon for the Laserjet and choose sharing (enable print sharing). You should be able to name the printer and make it accessible to anyone within the workgroup. If needed you can run the network setup wizard to change the workgroup names on both machines.

On the laptop go to add new printer and choose network printer, you should be able to browse to the desktop machine by name and choose the Laserjet as a printer (whether you want it to be the default is up to you). The laptop will download and install the drivers from the desktop pc to the laptop and set the correct network path automatically.

It goes without saying that the desktop machine must be on in order to print from the laptop in this scenario.

File sharing between computers


Thanks for giving me the opportunity to help. Try the following:

On your laptop with Vista, click start, then network from the right side. This will take you to the Network Screen. Click on the Network and sharing screen. Click on options such as file sharing, printer sharing etc. Make sure that you can see each device your your network. If you can't you must go to each PC and use the network options on the XP machines. It's pretty simple, just follow the instructions that the wizard provides.

I hope this gets you up and running. Thanks for using Fixya.com

File Sharing with Home Network...only one pc talking


The message for an unplugged network cable, means you have enabled wired network, but the cable isn't there. No problem if you are connected wireless.
To be able to access files on computers over your network, you need to enable filesharing for the desired directories or disks.
Right-click the directory or disk, go to sharing and set the correct settings. Maybe you have to allow for network sharing the first time.

Please post some feedback
