Hi

Check in the computer management / device manager window and see if there are proper drivers installed for the network / wireless card. If you are running windows XP take note if there is a red x or a yelloe questionmark. If there is a red x then the hardware is disabled. Right Click on it and left click on enable. If there id a yellow questionmark then Right Click and then left click on update driver. If you are running windows Vista then you will see a black linr under the device. You can try the same steps. I hope this helps.

/Shawn

Without taking a backup i reinstalled OS,it formatted all partitions,i stopped before it could install new OS,now removed the disk from my laptop,connected to PC,tried getdataback software,it recovers but...


Depending on what OS you were coming from and going to, the setup would have created a folder called "old windows" that would have all of your stuff from the old OS along with keeping the old software. At this point, it may be too late to rebuild the data. You could rebuild but installing your software from the cd's they came from or online. Depending on what software you are installing, all you will need is the setup file and a key.

It freezes many times a day and i have to shut it down manually every time


Don't open too many programs at once because they can slow down your computer, especially if your laptop is already aging. You might also want to scan your computer for viruses coz they are common causes of computer slowdowns.

My Compaq Presario V2000 will not start.


Ok, this makes sense. If this was a legit dvd, then it most likely had extra content on it (like wallpaper, sounds, etc) that installed something that crashed a driver.  If it wasn't legit, then the "player" that was used to play the movie installed something that crashed a driver.
If you can. I would reinstall some drivers to start.  Have you tried the "Last known good configuration" option?
Then if reinstalling drivers doesn't work, I would just restore the Windows OS.  But remember to BACKUP YOUR FILES.....once you restore it will be erased.
That compaq is a good machine unless you really want another PC this is fixable.

Connecting to internect


Hi Linda........
1. You can disconnect the Rj45 cable from the PC & connect
it directly to your notebook's Rj45 port. You should have access to the internet if a minute or two.
2. if you want access to both, Pc & notebook you'll need a wireless router. Like the link below. Click it.
http://www.linksys.com/servlet/Satellite?c=L_Product_C2&childpagename=US%2FLayout&cid=1138056788757&pagename=Linksys%2FCommon%2FVisitorWrapper&lid=8875739789B01
You can find these types of wireless routers at places like Wallmart & Best Buy. They come in even smaller packages.
With the software that is included you'll be connected to the internet in no time. Linksys also provides security so someone near to your home can not tap your internet service & get a free ride. Linksys provides setup assistance from day one.
Hope this helps you Linda!
