If your sure you haven't got a Virus... Then, Ok at boot up press F8, when the Menu comes up, choose Safe Mode, but this time instead of going to the desktop, choose System Restore, follow instructions, and when the Calender type window comes up, simply choose a time BEFORE, the time it went faulty. This should completely restore you to working again. As long as there are NO other problems.
Go to this website for more.... support.microsoft.com/kb/306084 -

My newly purchased dell inspiron 560 will not connect to the network due to "an invalid ip address". 10 other computers are working fine on the network. Any solutions?


You will need to manually configure the IP for your Local Network Connection: right click on the notification icon, go to Properties, double click Internet protocol version 4 (TCP/IPv4) Or click properties, click Use the following IP address and input the correct data according with the settings in your network - change just the IP first.

I need the icon back on my Inspiron 570 desktop. It helps me adjust the volumn by showing a little meter that you can raise or lower. HOw can I get it on my screen . thanks for any help.


There are two reasons one due to the hidden desktop icons and the other due to different user login. If you have logged in using another user ID, try logoff and login to your ID.
If it is due to hidden desktop icons, then right click on the empty area of the desktop, select "Arrange Icons by" on the context menu, and then click on "Show Desktop Icons"

On the start-up screen on my Inspiron 9400, when I select my username and enter the password, the system immediately logs me off and leaves just the screensaver picture with no icons. I have tried to log...


Now, there are a couple of different ways you may have lost your icons. They could have disappeared when you installed a certain program or even when you upgraded to a new operating system. Either way, you need them, so let's find them again! To enable those icons and more, right click on your desktop and choose Properties. Click on the Desktop tab and hit the Customize Desktop button. Next, under the General tab, check off any of the icons you want to appear on your desktop.
Once you do that, they will all be returned to your desktop in full view. You can choose from the icons of My Documents, My Computer, My Network Places and Internet Explorer. Now, on the other hand, you may want to take some of those icons off your desktop. If that's the case, just uncheck them and they will be out of your way.
