Question about Gateway GT5032 (827103078121) PC Desktop

Open Question

I cannot use my Yahoo, Google or Firefox search engines. I AM connected to the internet, CAN get onto Yahoo's home page, CAN go to websites using URL's in the address bar, CAN click on items in the Yahoo home page and get to them....BUT CAN'T type in a keyword in the search engine and get results. It always goes to an error message such as "The webpage "search.yahoo.com" cannot be foundDNS error occurred. Server cannot be found. The link may be broken." or the Oops! message. I am running Windows XP. Very frustrating.

I find you have 3 firewalls now, your modem, windows and Norton. Get rid of two. Usually your modem does a better job.

SOURCE: Keyboards wont work

Try hitting the Tab key from the web page address. If you can type then, it sounds like you've got a mouse pointer problem. Also try changing your search engine. Left click on the Yahoo symbol, then "Manage Search Engines" and select a different search program (Google, Amazon, e-bay, etc).

Since you can type, it's not a keyboard problem.

You may also want to try dragging your browser to a different part of your screen and trying to type with the window in a different part of the display. It's unlikely, but you may have a bad touchpad that doesn't recognize the upper right corner, so moving it to a different part of the display may isolate that problem, remote though it is.

Make Google and Mozill firefox my home page


you can have two or three or more but you need to have that amount of search engines on desk top ie; google internet explorer then google chrome as another and what ever one you want to use for that time it opens as normal and you can use one for mozill firefox and other google as you cant use two home pages on one search engine or use your droptab in internet explorer to use a preference choice but will need to change each time for the serach engine its a pain doing it that way so prob best just to down load two or three different search engines and then use your preferred engine choice using your homepage on each search engine hope that makes sense...
