I was doing something with my dell latitude d610 laptop key board and i lost the linksys wifi connection...although i came to know through my friend to press fn+f2 key,wifi LED comes on but no wireless...

Most likely configuration problem,Im afraid youll have to get the settings adjusted yourself most netbooks will auto configure unless you manually or by error change the settings.

Good luck

''Bad Image'' Error?

First download a copy of Dr. Web, Malware Bytes and Superantispyware. Run these one at time. This should get rid of all your problems, if not a Windows repair is next.

I dont see the icons on the screen

The same thing happened to me, after I installed a new program that change my computer configuration. If you can re-boot and press F8, and you choose the safe mode, you may be able to correct the configuration (delete a program, fix a driver...). Or even choose the boot option : The last good configuration (something like that). In the worse case, you might have to reinstall Windows completely.

Age of empires 3 wont download

May be that particular file is corrupt and this happens rarely.You said you are being given a ignore option.So keep pressing ignore untill all the corrupted files are skipped.Indeed this may effect the game play in any of the levels but something is better than nothing. Or else, if yours is a legitimate copy,Then you will have the manufacturers warranty, so you can replace it. Also try if its having the same problem when installing on to a different computer.

Recovery and Applications Issue (PLease help)

Restart your computer normally without the disk in. I beleive there's a message that pops up on the screen, something like F2 for recovery ( not sure of exact key). Press the key it tells you to and try starting the process over. Let me know what happens. If this solves your problem rate this as fixed. If not, DON'T rate it yet add a comment letting me know what happened and I'll be glad to assist you further. MAKE SURE YOUR ADAPTOR IS PLUGGED IN! Thanks.

Problem restarting, "press r"

  1. Start the laptop
  2. when the logo screen turns black start pressing F8 a few times.
  3. A Windows Boot Options screen should show on the screen
  4. If you see the Windows Logo (the normal thing when Windows loads, then press reset and try again
  5. At the Windows Boot Options screen select "Last known good configuration" and press Enter twice
It "should" now load normally, if not then..
  1. Replace step 5 above with "Safe Mode" and see if that loads all the way through. If so, then restart and see if its OK now.
If not, then post back with any error messages and we can look at something else.

Ican receive emails but when trying to send emails I get the error response.

open your email click tools up top then accounts the click on your account and click properties make sure were it says outgoing it says smtp + whatever it says on incoming without the pop
e.g. incoming -
outgoing -
if this doesnt work go to your service provider site it should say on there something about fixing your email settings or connection

No Power up

If you feel brave, open up the case (assuming no warranties etc, if it has a warranty sticker on it, and you know the warranty is valid, whatever you do- dont open the case, take it to them to fix!) and double check all power leads etc are plugged in correctly. The power box is the silver box, usually at the top left hand corner of your computer. Follow all the cables and make sure everythings plugged in. Usually if something is loose, you get some mad beeping, but some manufacturers turn the beeps off (Why, I dont know!) Check that there are no loose cables and everythings in nice and snug, then try booting it up again. Did anything happen between it working and it not? say, a pop or some crackling? or its been moved? Do you get any visual output at all?

Sorry If I can't be any more helpful at this stage, I have had this problem a few times with some computers, and its either somethings loose, or the motherboard has gone!
