Do you have a wireless security protocol enabled, and if so, what? Install a wired connection to the router (use an ehternet cable to connect your laptop's RJ-45--looks like a wide phone plug--into one of the Belkin router's network jacks). Go to the router's management page using your web browser (probably http://192.168.2.1). If you have not previously set the password in your router, simply leave the password field blank and CLICK "Submit". If you have previously password protected your Belkin router, use the known password. If you have forgotten your password... you'll need to reset your router.
 
Reest Router: there is usually a small hole into whiuch a pin or paper clip can be inserted for this purpose or a small button to press. Most Belkins--IIRC--have the button. 

Once you are on the Belkin router's management page, look for the wireless link and set your security protocol to match what your wireless card is capable of, set the password, save and exit. Use the sasme password in configuring wireless networking in Windows.

I have problem with VGA drivers because i can't find,cn you tell me if its any webside when i can download for my notebook amd packard bell c3300 .mentta


~To download drivers and specific software;

Always get your drivers from the manufacturer of your Laptop, Notebook or Desktop.

If you were to log on to the http://www.packardbell.com/index.html web site, usually one is able to download if available, by model number, All available Driver downloads as required.

If the driver is not available, perhaps your manufacturer does not support the OS you are installing.

This is the best way of ensuring up to date drivers for your system and they are free of charge!

There are no XP drivers to be found with Microsoft as XP is no longer supported.

Some manufacturers may have a limited number of Drivers still listed.

I hope this helps.

My Laptop Same Thing


The problem with upgrading or downgrading to MS Vista is the lack of driver support manufacturers provide as unlike other past Operating systems Vista did not sell very well retail...it was forced upon Manufacturers who "had" to include it at a certain point in their New Computers even though in MOST cases the Computers were really designed to work on XP and this caused havoc given the need to double RAM in most cases, even now many new computers still are sold with insufficient resources.

THat being said, many manufacturers of periferals, components like sound and video cards, Network Adapters broke with the tradition of providing UPGRADED DRIVERS for Vista as it was just not worth it for the FEW who bought Vista for their XP COmputers over the Counter. Also VIsta was quite different from win 2000-XP and didnt work on older Drivers.

The answer to your question is most likely there are NO Vista Drivers for your Network Adapter if they are not listed your Computer Website (which is common and traditional for past New O.S.). With Desktops the solution is a bit easier especially if you have independant Modules especially: Video, Sound, Network "cards' as plug ins not integrated with the Mother Board. Notebook Motherboards are all integrated and it would be difficult to find the exact Network Adapter and change it as you can easily do with a Desktop or just ADD a Network Adapter to one of the Expansion jacks that is compatable with Vista.

You Should first try to call the Computer Manufacturer to see if they have upgraded Drivers for your Computer. Usually the problem is with the sound, video, network and you are lucky the rest work.

SOLUTION: If you really like using Vista and want to stick with it just buy an EXTERNAL NETWORK ADAPTER for your Notebook; they come in either USB or PCMCIA versions, making sure they are compatable with VISTA.. They come with their own Installation Disk which contains the Drivers. The other obvious solution is to just reinstall Windows XP *shrug*. There is little improvment over XP and your Computer will run much faster on the Minimum Ram Memory VISTA Requires which is 2 gb and that is in most cases BARE MINIMUM. On 2gb XP FLIES! I see no advantage in "upgrading" to VIsta, especially if it poses such serious problems as a dysfucntional Wireless Network Adapter Card.

Cheers :)

Your computer may simply be unable to run 2 operating systems. On the odd occasion the main OS usually the newest one in this case vista is running in the background and interfering with kernel operations even if you have selected "Previous version of windows" the 1 and only solution i know of is to not only re-format XP but Vista also.

the website above MIGHT be able to find driver needed but i dont think it is a driver problem.
This may be the only way- do this first

Non working keys on laptop


You should just need to replace the keyboard.

However finding a keyboard for a packard bell in the US can be hard. That brand hasnt been sold here in years.

If you are in europe it should be less of a problem though.
Made sure to get the exact model of the laptop to get the right keyboard.

Good luck!
