    Hi Trucker

    If you are connected then you should see My Network Neighbourhood?

    Run Start - Run - type cmd and enter to open a command window. Then type ipconfig /all and check for an IP address and a DHCP address. If you get a similar result to below, then you have a proper connection.

    Assuming this is OK, then check your Internet Explorer options.

    Make sure you have no proxy set in Tools - Internet Options - Connections - LAN settings

Restore travelmate to factory default settings

Unfortunately for Toshiba you will need the restore disks from Toshiba. You can go online and purchase the Disks.
Option 2
1 - Use your old computer to download software so you can retrieve your Windows KEY, unless there is a sticker on your computer that has it printed.
2 - Download a correponding version of windows on the internet and use your key.
3 - After install, you may have to go to toshiba website and download needed drivers.

This should work just fine.

Cant get on the internet

The longer the cable, the slower the connection.

It should work with the cable as it is not "too" long.

I would try turning the modem and router off for one minute and then turning back on.

I need to know how to run my ps3 thru the optical wire to my hdtv

Before you start ensure that you read the TV instruction manual to know which resolution supports it. Do not switch on the TV and your console

You can connect your Playstation 3 to your TV in three different methods:

  1. Connecting with an AV cable
  2. Connecting with an HDMI cable
  3. Connecting with an Optical Cable

Connecting with an AV Cable:

  1. You are supplied with a Composite AV cable which would typically look like the below image
  2. Connect the AV Multi Out Connector to the socket on the back of your PS3 Console.
  3. Match the colors of the Jacks with the connectors on the TV which says "Video in".

Connecting with an HDMI Cable:

HDMI cable is not supplied with the PS3. You need to purchase it seperately. This cable would enhance the audio-video quality of your TV.

  1. Just connect one end of the connector to the HDMI OUT connector socket on the back of the console
  2. Connect the other end to the socket on the back of your TV which says HDMI IN.

Connecting with an Optical cable:

You need to purchase an Optical cable if you wish to connect your PS3 console through a digital audio device (Home theater, AV receiver etc.,). You need to connect Video ouput seperately with a help of Video output cable (HDMI, AV Cable etc.,)

  1. Connect one end of the optical cable to "Audio Out" socket on the console
  2. Connect the other end to the audio receiver.

Note: You can also connect your console to the Internet to use the Playstation 3 internet capabilities. Here's how you do it:

The Playstation 3 only supports 10BASE-T, 100BASE-TX and 1000BASE-T type networks. It needs a High speed internet connection. Do not connect it to a standard telephone connection or cables that are not supported. It might cause a malfunction or damage to the system.

Internet problem 1)some site i go to tends to hang up then i F% for refresh and it connects to the site right away. 2) i tried to d/l updates for nero 7 using the nero 7 program it connects to the site...

About the software, by default it should connect directly to the internet but it you are using a specific proxy server then you would have to configure the way it connects to the internet. If you are sure it's direct, then you would have to repair the software by re-installing it.

With the burner, it's possible that the lens is weak. Try cleaning the lens using a lens cleaner. If it persists, try updating the driver. Every burner has a number of read and write times so the more you use it, the weaker it becomes and when it gets to it's limit, then it would not function properly again.

About the system restore, it you are even able to take your system back to the way it was when you purchased it, everything you changed will be lost. If you have a problem, try repairing your operating system.
