The default settings are to obtain IP automatically. I'm assuming you changed the workgroup or domain name. Right-click My Computer and select Properties then Computer Name. Click on the Change button to change the workgroup or domain name.

Cannot connect to the internet with pc, can connect with my laptop wireless. using windows vista but niether internet explorer or mozilla firefox can connect.


First check your network adapter settings )make sure that it is set to 'obtain ip address automatically'). In network and sharing center, make sure that you are not using a public network. Also, in control panel, internet options on the connections tab, make sure that use a proxy server is not checked in LAN Settings.

Want to set up a new password for facebook.com and for google


Suddenly you attempt to login to your Facebook profile.
Perhaps you have simply forgotten your password or worst case your Facebook account security has been compromised.

Having had this happen to me, I can help you reset your Facebook password and restore your peace of mind.

You will be back networking with your friends, family and coworkers in no time.
Go to your computer bring up the Facebook login screen like you normally would.

Do not fill in any information.

Click on the link above your Facebook user name and password that states forgot your password. This brings you to a different screen.

Fill in the email address associated or on file with your Facebook account.
If you cannot remember, keep trying different email addresses until you do.

Click enter and a Facebook reset link will be sent to your email so you can recover your password. It usually takes up to 5 minutes.

Check your spam email folder if the email does not appear in your inbox.

Click the link in your email and answer any security questions by Facebook.
This brings back to the Facebook website.

Reset your password with a phrase you will remember mixed in with 1 to 2 numbers or more. Record this in a notebook or on a safe place.

Use a different password than you would for your email.

This decreases your chances of having both websites compromised.

Change Your Google Password
Although its fame roots from its search engine, Google offers other services such as email, groups and alerts.

To access these features, you must create a Google account.
Your Google account can also be used at Blogger.com or to use Google's AdSense advertisement revenue program.

Generally, you must know your Google account password to change it.
The only exception to this is if you have previously changed your password recovery options through Google's "Manage Account" page.

Open the Google accounts homepage in your web browser (see Below).

http://www.google.com/support/accounts/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=41078

Enter your user name and password into the appropriate fields on the right-hand side of the page.


Click the "Change password" link under the "Personal Settings." Enter your current password in the first field.

Enter your new password in the "New password" field. Make sure your password appears "Good" or "Strong" according to Google's password strength tool on the right-hand side of the window. You will not be allowed to change your password if the new password is considered weak.

Click the "Save" button to finalize your password change.
If You Do Not Know Your Password

Open the Google accounts homepage in your web browser (see Resources).
http://www.google.com/support/accounts/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=41078

Click on the blue "Can't access your account?" link beneath the login fields.
Select the "I forgot my password" option on the next page.
Click on the blue "Reset your password now" link that appears underneath the initial options.
Enter your email address.
If you have a Gmail address, answer the security question to proceed.

If you have an email address through another service provider, open the password retrieval email sent by Google to continue.
Enter a new password into the "Password" field.
Confirm the password by reentering it in the appropriate field.

Troubleshooting problem


Go to your office, or to your friend house, and try it on another and different network. Also use a cable connection. If not better, you need a service assistance on your network adapters and network software.

Internet password on pc


It's important to safeguard yourself from dangerous hackers by using passwords in your Web browsers. If you forget the passwords you use to surf the Web, most browsers--including Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome--will allow you to view your saved passwords. Some browsers, such as Microsoft's Internet Explorer, will not allow you to retrieve your passwords unless you use a third-party tool.

Open Firefox. Click "Tools" at the top of the screen and select "Options." Go to the "Security" section, click "Saved Passwords," and then click "Show Passwords." Google Chrome b> Open Google Chrome. Click the wrench icon on the top of the screen. Go to the "Personal Stuff" tab and click "Saved Passwords."
Find Your WiFi Password
b> Although your Wi-Fi password is saved on your computer, it should be stored in a safe place in case you need to allow access to your network. Your Wi-Fi password should be treated the same way as your ATM PIN, as it allows anyone with a laptop the ability to join your network. In the wrong hands, your information could be intercepted if someone is on your network. Locating your Wi-Fi password on your computer is easy, but it should be given only to those you know and trust.

Password Locator for PCs
Open your Internet browser. Type in "CNet.com" and click the "Downloads" tab located underneath the search bar at the top of the browser screen. Type "Wirelesskeyview" in the search bar, and click the "Magnifying glass" button. Click the first search result, followed by clicking the "Download Now" button to begin the download. Save the file to your desktop. Double-click the file to run the program. The password will be displayed in the program's window. b> Password Locator for Macs b> Click the "Finder" icon on your dock. Select "Go" and "Applications" from the drop-down menu. Double-click the "Utilities" folder, followed by double-clicking the "Keychain Access" button. Double-click the name of your network, and check the box next to "Show Password." Type your System Administrator password, and click "OK." Hope this helps.

My laptop will not connect to my Internet. It says it's connected to an unknown network with an invalid Ip address. I don't know how to kix it at this point.


You must be connected wireless. I believe your in 1 of 2 situations.
First of all, when you connect to a wireless network, the network assigns you an ip address. When it's YOUR network you already have an ip address and if someone connects to you they would get that.
Either you have a wireless network that is un-secure and someone else nearby is connected to it. Or someone else in the area has an unsecured network and you have mistakenly connected to them.
You must setup your router properly with a network name (SSID) behind a secure firewall with WPA-2 security. WEP security can be hacked very easily.
Go to the website of the router you have and look for setup features or go to the manual. It's really not that hard if you have the time to do it and know one bothers you during it.
You can also go to,

Wireless connection


Start->Settings->Control Panel. Double click in Internet Options.

On the Connections tab, click on Never Dial a Connection. While you're there, click on LAN settings. Automatically detect settings should be checked, but normally nothing else should be checked.

If this doesn't help, you may need to rebuild the stack:
Start, Run, CMD to open a command prompt.

Reset WINSOCK entries to installation defaults: netsh winsock reset catalog

Reset TCP/IP stack to installation defaults. netsh int ip reset reset.log

Reboot the machine

How to download vga driver


I will try to answer this one, but i don't know whether you are looking for drivers for a special card or you are searching for your motherboard on-board video drive.

case 1: on-board drivers can be found at the manufacturer's websites, in case you network is slow, you can use someone else's network. just go to the website, lookup support, lookup your hardware or motherboard model and the driver for the mobo, will fix chipset, audio, video issues.

case2: higher end graphic card such as nvidia or ati or intel can be found at the manufacturer's website also, or on the cd that came with the graphics card. in case we are talking about a laptop here, then you should go to the laptop's manufacturer and lookup your hardware. all manufacturer's usually have most drivers on their web page within a month of the release of that certian unit. Toshiba tend to take longer.

Case 3: which is more technical, in case you don't know who is the manufacturer of the actual part, go to device manager, find the unknown device or uninstalled device, right click on it, choose properties, detais tab, hardware id( i have actually seen people using software to get information that windows already offers. why buy "unknown device" and everest just for that) copy and paste that string on google and it will show you where the driver is, specially for intel based hardware. good luck hunting drivers.
