Question about Dell Inspiron Notebook

1 Answer

Enabling Cookies? I have a dell inspiron 1420 notebook, with windows vista and internet explorer. I used to watch my ABC shows on perfectly. I have since had a few problems with vista (as I am sure a lot of people are) and have had to reinstall more than once. I haven't changed any of my settings, and this last time I have tried to watch the videos but it says I need to enable more cookies. I have tried doing the tips like tools and internet options, and even putting under 'List of Trusted Sites' but nothing is working. I can watch YouTube and other sites, but not streaming media apparantly, and now cannot even log on to pay my credit card bill! Please help! Thanks!

I want to start safe mode on inpriron 11420

From what i see in your specs the Dell Inspiron 1420 came with Win Vista. I assume you have upgraded, Did you check Win 8 compatibility with your hardware? You may have exceeded the hardware components limitations. Therefore it will not run Win 8 with much sucess, and will continue to crash, Check here: That said, I would use win 7 at the most.

You can try two things here:
1. Run windows update to make sure you have all the latest updates for Internet Explorer.
2. Download Mozilla Firefox from and see if that browser will play them. I had a computer once with Vista that would not play Youtube videos at all, no matter what I did, but I downloaded Firefox and it works perfectly. Vista can be strange sometimes. Good luck.
