N Windows Mail, go to Tools, Accounts, select the account, Properties,
Connection, uncheck the box for "Always connect to..."
If you have more than one account, do this for all accounts.
This ensures that Windows Mail will use whatever connection is
used by Internet Explorer.

The desktop is blackscreen


When you say your desktop has a black screen does that mean after your computer boots up its black or even right when you turn it on you do not even see the the Bios screen.

I know you wrote desktop but are you just using that as a term for a a computer so Is is a laptop or desktop?

There are three possibilities,
1) Your screen died
2) Your graphics card died ( if its a desktop it usually an easy fix, if its a laptop most times its unfix-able )
3) if its a laptop can you see a very faint image? if so there is something called an inverter that can be replaced to fix that issue

Keep getting internet connection error#633


I Believe what is happening is that you have more than one connection trying to connect either that or is connected what I would suggest doing is checking your network connections. to do that you must do the following.
If using
1.XP: Go to start/run/type in ncpa.cpl and hit ok
vista: go to start/search bar/type ncpa.cpl
same with windows 7
2.If you are using a router wirelessly the connection will be a wireless connection however if you are connected with and ethernet cable it will say Local Area Connection.
3.Right click on the connection you are not using and hit disable.
4.If you have a Dial up connection that you don't use anymore you should delete it.
5.try the web browser "I hope this helped you out"

The broadband box pops up when i go to livemail . how do i stop it when i go to livemail


If I understand this correctly, when you open the internet to check your E-mail, it prompts you to connect? Try going (in Internet Explorer) to Tools | Internet Options | Connections and be sure that "Always dial" is not selected. Instead, change this to "Dial whenever a broadband conenction is not available" and see if this stops your issue.

Hp doesn't start. Always open xp window saying gathering info Please wait while windows configures scan. Installed cd with no problem.


As soon as you start rebooting your computer, hit F8 over and over again until you get into a boot menu. Pick "Safe Mode."

It should boot. This is a temporary fix.

When you're in, click Start, then Run. Type in "msconfig" without the quotes. Hit Enter.

A new window pops up. Click on the Startup tab. Find a file called hpqtra08.exe and undo the checkbox. Hit Apply and OK. msconfig will ask you if you want to restart with the changes; you do.

Your computer should boot normally. When it does, msconfig will ask you if you want that menu to appear next time you boot; you do not.

I just got done setting up my windows mail and when i tried to send mail the error message reads..The connection to the server has failed. Subject 'hello', Account: 'Mail', Server: 'smtp.mail.yahoo.com',...


Since you have not signed up for Yahoo Mail Plus, they do not allow you to use another program to access your mail. They want you to use their WebMail Page so that they can serve you ads to pay for their service. They have an excellent Email Web Page, so it's a small price to pay.

But if you really need POP access and don't want to pay to get it, you could consider using Gmail. They allow POP access for free. Just setup a new Gmail account and go into the settings on the Gmail Webpage. From there, you can enable POP access. Be sure to write down the server information you will need to enter into your Email Program.

Good Luck with whatever choice you make!

Verify the setting via Manage accounts on your XP machine (the one the email client works on) in whatever email client you use on it and verify and edit if need be the setting in your Windows Live Mail on your Vista home Laptop.

Could be connected.

From inside Windows, go to the run command off the Start Menu and type "cmd" without the quotes.

In the command window that follows type:
chkdsk /f c:
hit enter.

Windows will tell you there are open handles, etc and do you want to run this on the next boot. Answer Yes and reboot.

Then try again.

The second cause if your default browser is not IEplorer. You can change this in by opening IExplorer and go to the Options, Connections and tell it you are on a network.

Any questions or need for more clarification just ask by commenting back to me in the comment box below.
