Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

I got a brand new Dell Vista laptop computer for Christmas, and it has been working just fine hooked up to bellsouth DSL USB connection until about 2 days ago. Now when I click on AT&T Webmail (or anything else for that matter), it does not respond...but the "circular motion" (with the arrow) keeps going all the time. I have tried everything from disconnecting the modem - the USB connection - unplugging from the wall, etc. etc. with no results. I am at a loss as to what is causing this, and I need professional help asap. Please respond quickly....thank you.

HP 4450 desktop, not have a ethernet port


No you can't.
But you have ywo other options to use broadband connection.
1. Use a USB modem, or
2. Install a network card to be able to use an ethernet cable.

A network card cost around $10.00.

New Dell desktop can't recognize external hard drive


I devised these simple steps that tend to remedy quite a few issues with most USB portable / external hard drives and devices (though not always)

A few things to check but assumes USB and Windows for other interfaces / operating systems similar steps may be adapted to suit.

1. Ensure it is connected directly to the computer to a USB 2.0 port not a USB 1.0 port as this can have effects on performance and reliability

2. Use only the cables that came with it NOT one that fits that may have been lying around or is longer. Not all USB cables are equal even though they should be)

3. Do not connect through an external USB HUB unless that hub is USB 2.0 AND has its own power supply.

4. Use ONLY the power supply that came with it if it has an external power supply Don’t use any other unless you know it has both the same voltage and current rating e.g. 12V 500mA anything rated below that would not work properly.

5. Always use the same port for connecting your devices. Some devices do not like being switched about. If switched they may want to install software / drivers again. This can be especialy true if you move a HUB to another port

If you checked and fixed anything there and still have issues then check your hardware from CONTROL PANEL / SYSTEM / HARDWARE.
Any exclamation marks by hardware need fixing before you investigate any further

Ethernet port not working. can i connect from my dsl by using a usb cable instead.


Yes, if your dsl modem is equipped with a usb option, you can hook it up to your computer but remember to remove the ethernet cord 1st. Both ethernet and usb cannot be connected at the same time. Once connected, your machine may search for a driver to install the modem via the usb port but it should work, especially if it's a westell. Best of luck.

I recently purchased a new desktop which I had linksys connected to my old pc so that my laptop would work wirelessly. Both are Dell computers. I have a Linksys WRT54G router. I have Vista and the...


I don't see why not..
are you trying to hook up both computers to your linksys router?
if you have 3 computers now... I'm assuming your old pc was connected directly to the router, your laptop was connected wirelessly and now you have a brand new computer that you also want to connect to the internet using your lynksis router.. you should have not problems doing it, wirelessly or using a wire...as long as your router has ports avaliable...

I am useing DSL (westell modem) the modem is working but when I hook up my router WRT54G I am unable to connect to bellsouth internet.


I had a similar problem when I installed my DSL service. The problem I had was that the IP address for the modem and the wireless router ended in 0. i.e. 192.169.1.0. I had to chage the routers default IP to something line 192.168.1.10. Try this and see if it helps. You have to log onto your router without the modem connected to do this.

I can't conect my dsl in my computer


Hi,

Most DSL would need an interface of some sort commonly called a modem. Normally the DSL would come in to the modem and the modem would output it to your PC either through an Ethernet port or through a USB port. Of course an active subscription to the DSL provider is a prerequisite.

Standard network settings for the PC would be to "Obtain an IP address automatically". This would work on either wired Ethernet hook up or WiFi connection. Of course prerequisite would be correctly installed hardware and supporting drivers.

If your concern has not been addresses or if problem persist, you need to p[ost back your modem's brand & model, your ISP, your type of connection and the brand and model of your.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I am so frustrated. I have a brand new computer and running on Windows Vista. It is not recognizing the Lexmark 1270 printer. I've tried everything. When I hook the printer up to my other computer...


Had a similiar issue with Vista not playing nice with my Dell all in one.
Had to go to the dell site and find a driver for this unit that will work with Vista, but first they will show a list of compatible printers and non-compatible so I would look for that first.
Good luck.

Ethernet for my dell 4600 pc


No, you don't need a card, as long as you have an Ethernet to USB adapter, you should be just fine.
