It might be due to software settings or the version of the flash plug in. I suggest you to update your flash player from adobe.com, also you can use alternate browsers such as opera or firefox (http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/products/download.html?product=firefox-3.0.1&os=win&lang=en-US)

Good Luck

Have a used dell dimension 2400, hard drive died i replaced it, but i dont have the original os disc that came with the system, can i use my copy of vista, or find another copy


If your Dell computer had Vista installed then you can use your copy of Vista CD and you can use the product installation code that is printed on the Windows label that is attached to your Dell.
When you insert the Windows CD into your Dell and boot up your computer then select the CD as the boot device (ie 4=IDE CD).

After Windows is installed and activated then you need to install the Dell computer's device drivers.
You can download the device drivers from Dell WEB site, the support download page. Make sure you select your model desktop or laptop, better still, type in the Service Tag number, it is printed on the label on the bottom of the laptop and on the back or sides of a desktop. (If the Service Tag label is missing then go into the BIOS setting and on one of the BIOS pages, the Service Tag number will be displayed). This will open the page where the specific drivers for your model computer are located. Also make sure you select the Windows of the drivers for your Windows operating system. Click on this link to download the drivers: - http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx?c=us&l=en&s=gen

You should download the drivers BEFORE you change the OS and maybe put them on a flash drive or burn them to a CD.

You can get them direct from the DELL site.

It maybe that your XP disc does not recognise a SATA drive and for that reason you should use the F6 option whilst booting from the XP setup disk and point it to the CD or flash drive.

From then on you should be able to format the disck.

Some of the dells are a little tricky that way.

You may also have to change the bios option as for sata type
I have had to do this on a few dell laptops.to down grade from vista to XP

Is there a download limitation using Windows Vista?


first of all turn your antivirus and firewall back on at once, as this is not the cause! i think this may be some cable modem<->vista incompatibility

Adobe flash player quit working


This problem is most likely related to a Windows Vista permissions issue. Because Vista has security features to prevent scumbag spammers and spyware from infesting your computer, programs will not automatically install themselves. I have had success by logging into Vista as an administrator, then installing whatever programs I wanted, then logging back in under my normal usage account. Sometimes simply being in the administrator account is not enough, but I hope this gets you in the right direction.
