The problem in the registry. Go to start => run regedt and navigate to the following entries :

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advanced
=> is there an entry called Start_ShowControlPanel and what's its value ? If it's different from 2 then set it to 2.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
=> in each location is there an entry called NoControlPanel and what's its value ? If it's different from 0 then set it to 0.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer
=> is there an entry called NoClose and what's its value ? If it's different from 0 then set it to 0.
and then let me know
there is one more way if this thing doesnt work pls let me know

Mini pro back button work itself


Open the calibration applet in windows and verify that the button is working in the applet (Control Panel, Game controllers in windows xp. Devices and printers in windows 7) If the issue persists try reinstalling the driver, if this does not resolve the issue then you likely have a bad button on your controller.

I had to re-install windows xp, and now there's no internet. I believe I might need to re-install the driver, because it doesn't seem to be recognizing the Zhone or the dsl connection. Is the driver...


yup you need to reinstall the drivers for your computer, most likely the drivers are removed after doing the re installation of windows, you can download the drivers for your windows on your OEM website original equipment manufacturer, check device manager in control panel,

go to control panel, click switch to classic view then click system in system click tab hardware click button device manager this is in XP

in vista win7 go to control panel in vista switch to classic view in win7 click drop down upper right of the icon select large or small icons, after switching to classic view select device manager on the list of icons if you see any question marks then you will need to reinstall all of those drivers missing ^_^
