Hi

I think your Operating System (OS) software installed after formatting does not have drivers for the wireless network card.

You did not provide any clues about the OS and the Network (Model/Brand) installed.

Dell Inspiron 6000 did ship with Windows XP as the Default OS and Dell Wireless 1350, 1370, 1450,1390, 1490, and 1500 series Mini Card or Intel PRO Wireless 2200BG, 2915ABG Wireless LAN Mini Cards as options

First, check the Original System Configuration to find out the built specification of the Inspiron 6000.
Enter you system tag. Click on the Original System Configuration Tab. Check the factory built specification and note the Wireless Card installed from the factory. If you have not changed or upgraded the Wireless Card, download and install the drivers from the list below.

Dell Wireless 1350, 1370, 1450,1390, 1490, and 1500 series Mini Card Drivers
Intel PRO/Wireless 2200BG / 2915ABG Wireless LAN Mini Card Drivers

I am almost sure you will need drivers for the Chipset, onboard network and video.
Intel Mobile Chipset
Broadcom 440x 10/100 Integrated Controller Driver v.4.25
Video (as above check the factory spec if you ordered the ATI MobilityRadeon X300)
Intel Graphics Video (onboard) Driver v.6.14.10.4609
ATI MobilityRadeon X300 Driver v.8.162-050803a2-025823C

Let me know how you get on.

Mike

Internet in my computer is very slow


Slow Internet can be caused by many thing, I need more info to make a informed suggestion, But you can start be running a FULL virus scan with a good anti virus, also you want to run a FULL scan with a malware program, I would suggest using MALWAREBYTES found here:http://www.filehippo.com/download_malwarebytes_anti_malware/. If you do not have a UP TO DATE Anti-Virus, one can be found on the filehippo site for free, REMEMBER to uninstall the anti virus on your machine, if you want to try another anti virus, always use the Makers REMOVAL TOOL if they supply one, I use AVAST, but that is your choice. If you have a Anti Virus make sure it's updated and working properly. You statement,"Internet in my computer is very slow" does not give me much to work with. Need computer Manufactuer, Model, type OS, etc. Also are you using TOOLBARS on you IE or what ever Broswer you are using. TOOLBARS, MESSENGERS, CHAT, any thing that is "hogging" your resourses when using your broswer SHOULD BE DISABLED, the rule is the more "Stuff" you have running, on you computer at start, or your broswer will slow it down. It's like YOU, on a long walk, ever half mile you pick up a 10 pound weight, after a day treck you have to slow down a bit. To make a short story long, GET RID OF THE EXCESS BAGGAGE. If you need assistance respond to this solution.

Virus Check


when my F761usa screen turned black just happened I was reading my emails, since then I never can turn on my F761usa, not even get bios reboot. I thought I got deadly virus attacking to kill my notebook. during investigation we found our neighbour invaded our wireless router (we can see Nikky ipod as device name appeared in router, we blocked it then another Nikky phone as device name appeared again), meanwhile we found log files recording naughtyamerica website, we realized our neighbour visited some dangerous websits that's why I kept getting very dirty-emails over past 3 years.
By adjust netgear and notebook parameters setting finally our neighbour can't steal our internet services any more.
Then we spent $10 to convert internal HD as external usb HD and could be accessed by our another HP DV7. I doubt it was virus caused it.
we has att DSL internet services which provides McAfee, we has very old Netgear WGT624 wireless router but can block/data secured and window vista provides network secured setup.
we didn't buy any other virus software but run the free version(advanced systemcare).

My computer's internet connection keeps resetting, off and on.


About the internet connection issue, There might be a problem with the operating system, some system files might be corrupted due to virus attack, I suggest you to scan for the viruses first, If still problem persist then check the cables used to connect the internet.
I suggest you try with the re-installation of the operating system.


Audio issue: By looking at your issue I can say there might be virus attack. Please do a check once.
Install the video player codec again and try to insert the dvd, I am sure you will get the audio.

I suggest You to use VLC video player, it will play almost all video and audio formats.

Any further issue you can contact me, We will surely help you.

I have some weird problem. As soon as I connect either LAN or wireless, 5-10 cmd windows open up and close very rapidly within seconds. This just keeps on going and doesn't allow me to do anything. This...


Sorry for the earlier post:

Well, this sounds a lot like a virus... Usually, viruses ten to wake up when the computer is connected to the internet. The first most basic thing to do is to disconnect the computer from the internet and start scanning viruses. I can guarantee that you will probably find small viruses, but nothing major. Most chances is that you will have to format and install the computer, so I would urge you to save all important information. You can try to insert the original windows CD, if you have it. Insert the disk as soon as you restart and then boot from the disk. The windows installation will ask you if you want to repair the windows installation, and you can choose this option. However, it is most recommended that with such aggressive viruses, as you have, to format the whole computer and install the windows

Acer aspire one under virus attack


Your best bet is to do the following;
1 download either SuperAntiSpyware or MalWareBytes update via the internet and scan the disk (these are excellent and both Free)

2 Remove any Malwere they recommend

3 If the message still comes up download and run Trojan Remover - this will remove it.

Then make sure you are protected in future by installing an anti-virus system like (if you dont want to pay) Avira or Avast or if you do Kaspersky or Bitdefender

Can not find wireless driver and network drivers


Lim, sorry to hear about the virus attack. Hope you can get a better protection next time. I will recommend Avast Antivirus instead of AVG.

Then again, this will be the link to help with the driver download.
