Question about Toshiba Computers & Internet

2 Answers

When surfing the Internet websites don't come in correctly on my Laptop. Colors are missing causing information to be missing. I repaired this problem on my PC by going to Tools, Internet Options, Accessibility button at the bottom of the General tab and then unchecking Ignore Corlors specified on web pages. This did not work on my laptop. I have a vision problem and have enlarged the print on my computer so the problem may be to do with accessability.

    Everything is clear on my desktop. The problem is when I am surfing the internet. It seems that what's missing is colors. I don't know how to do what you suggested with Java and Flash player. but I can watch streaming videos with no problem.

  • jgilham Jul 03, 2008

    In the settings window the color is 32 bits

    the font is 800 X 600 because of my vision

    On the Appearance the color scheme is set to Windows classic and when I click advanced the item chosen in desktop.

  • jgilham Jul 03, 2008

    changing colors in the advanced window didn't seem to do anything. Can the problem be with the settings in Internet Explorer?

  • jgilham Jul 03, 2008

    I just found the problem myself. Do I still have to pay $10.00?

    Here's how I fixed it. I went to the Control Panel to Accessibility, then Display and unclicked High Contrast. It makes some of my icons smaller, but it was obviously what was causing the problem surfing.

    I don't know how to rate the solution. I've never done this before.

How to repair the webcamera


First install a missing driver, you can download it from the laptop manufacturer website if you don't have the software for it!

For example if the webcam is from Dell/Toshiba/Acer/Lenovo then visit Dell/Toshiba/Acer/Lenovo website...

First uninstall the older device drivers and then install the latest device drivers. You can also download the latest webcam drivers from the internet and install the new device drivers.

Now go to manufacture site & in the download option, select your model number.

After selecting the laptop model number from site, click on 'Software & Drivers Downloads'.

Now you need to choose your operating system & select the given updates & follow all instructions to download it.

After complete download, install supported driver for your laptop webcam. After install driver, reboot your laptop again and check that your webcam is working properly or not.

I hope it will fix your webcam not working issue if laptop is not facing any hardware issue.

Internet speed problem


Hi,
Use the below steps.

1. Internet Speed Problems caused by Binding too many Agreements on Network Card
Slow internet surfing speed is a usual problem among LAN users because there are too many agreements binding on the Network Card. If a NIC is bound lots of agreements then the computer has to spend more time on identifying which agreement would transmit a certain group of data that passes it. PC users will feel uncomfortable at the moment when they are surfing the Internet. Here is a solution for this situation: a. Use a Network Card to run only PPPOE agreement to connect ADSL; this will provide the exterior connection of internet. b. Use another one to run other agreements in order to boost its performance so that the speed of internet surfing would be improved obviously.
2. Internet Speed Problems caused by Unbound TCP/IP Agreement.
Unbound TCP (Transport Control Protocol)/IP (international agreement) may be caused by reasons as follow: a. the driver of Network Card is installed incorrectly. b. There is a problem with quality of Network Card. c. PCI slot is broken. Solution for this situation: You should uninstall NIC driver in the Device Manager at first----reinstall the driver after you reboot your computer. If you still fail to improve the internet speed with this solution, please change a PCI slot for Network Card or change a new one.
3. Internet Speed Problems caused by low quality of telephone line.
If the phone line is affected by some bad extraneous factors, network device will adjust client access rate automatically and dynamically according by the quality of line and transmission distance. The Internet surfing Speed also will be affected by the export bandwidth, the website line from opponents and the device configuration if you try to visit foreign website.
4. Internet Speed Problems caused by too much installed Internet Explorer plug-ins.
Internet Explorer plug-ins would be installed or loaded on your computer automatically when you open Internet Explorer and visit website. Surfing speed of course will be slowed down by too much Internet Explorer plug-ins. It is highly recommended to use some optimization tools to optimize your speed of Internet and clean some disused Internet Explorer plug-ins to speed up Internet surfing.

My laptop keeps shutting off it is a hp pavillion dv6000


1- Scanning computer to eliminate malwares, spywares and the viruses from your laptop.
2- Repairing and cleaning Windows registry.
These two tips are found to be very helpful to fix the laptop shutdown problem. Almost all the computer users surf internet which could result in viruses attacking your system. Some of these infections are really pesky and cause the machines to shutdown randomly.
The registry errors, however, are the internal errors and can become a cause of system crashes and freezes. The registry keys shall be in good health to keep a system perfect.
When I noticed my laptop keeps shutting down everytime, I tested the Intel Software Partner, RegInOut to fix the random shutdown problem with my laptop.

Hello,

please contact your internet provider for the information how to configure your internet access, the ip adress and dns. Most providers have
step by step instructions how to set it up, or providing a setup programm that will configure it for you.
Once you have your connection to the provider setup you will also receive packets back.

Look on the microsoft support page, there are detailed instructions how to troubleshoot wireless connections.

I hope this solves your problem.

Not recieving connection on Dell laptop


Hi Billy 3958,

First off you need to go to your network connections, and right click on the wireless connection and view status. Then click on the support tab, and then the details tab. This will show you what the IP configuration is. You need to have a gateway (which is your wireless router IP) and a assigned IP address for the laptop, and also a dns IP to resolve who you are. I'm going to guess that one of them are missing, perhaps the DNS? If there is any missing click on the repair button, and see if it corrects the problem. If not, then you have a bigger problem then you bargined for. You didn't mention the name or model of the router, but if the repair button doesn't do the trick, then you will need to post information on the router, so I can help you get into that to get you connected. Also, post if this router is connecting any one else to the internet, if so, then you can look at their setup and copy that manually into your laptop. If your running XP or Vista, you can click on add a new wireless connection and it will walk you through connecting you to the router.

Good Luck,

And don't forget to post the information if repair doesn't work, and don't forget to leave a rating, based on your experience with my support.

Thanks
Mark

Have wireless signal but no IP


Starting from the obvious, check that the cables are installed correctly.
You have to have a cable that brings the internet to your place.
Connect that cable into the router's jack labeled Connection to Modem.
Then get another network cable and plug it into any other jack form the back of your wireless router, and the other end into your laptop, just to make sure you are getting connected.
Once you are sure you can surf the net, unplug the wire from your laptop, and you should be able to surf wirelessly.

And if you still can't connect, let me know to perform additional steps.

Please don;t forget to rate this answer if helps.
