Thats because the starter version does not support changing the background. Other people have found ways of using certain programs to make it work. Do a "Google" and it will help you.

We have an Advent 7088 laptop and want to connect it to wireless router. We thought a wireless facility was already installed in the 7088 but when we try the wireless on/off button nothing happens. What...


Try this: I found it after doing some searching on the web.

Wireless card stops working after upgrading to Windows Vista
After upgrading to Windows Vista everything works fine apart the Marvell Wireless card, when you press the button nothing happens.
There seems to be three different ways of solving this problem (there is a fourth - don't install Vista) and I've listed them below, hopefully at least one should work for you.
The first solution is to press the wireless button while Windows Vista is loading, you have to be quick though as it only works if you press the button between the loading scrolling lines logo (after the post screen) and before the windows logo appears.
The second is to go into Device Manager, select the Marvell Wireless card and then go to Properties>Advanced>Default Adhoc Mode. Here change the Default Adhoc mode to B or G. When you confirm the change the wireless connection should become active, if it doesn't then press the wireless button and try changing the setting again.
The third method is to create a desktop shortcut to the wireless adapter. Go to [Network and Sharing Centre]>[Manage Network Connections] and then right click the wirless connection and choose Create Shortcut. You can then switch on the wireless at any time, just point at the shortcut then right click and chose Disable. Once its disabled right click on the shortcut again and choose Enable. It should then connect within 20-30 seconds.

I have a acer AL5100-ud4400a i pressed alt+f10 while booting now im stuck on (verifing dmi pool data...... update success) nothing else happens any answers would be appreciated.


Huh, it seems to be stuck picking a boot device. Narrow it down by removing (disconnecting) USB, flash or optical devices, and see what happens. It might have been polling a failed DVD-ROM drive or something....

You can also try reseating your videocard or installing a lesser one until you get it booted....

Click "yes, I want to activate" -- a telephone-number should be displayed. Telephone Microsoft, at that number, and they will help you "activate" your copy of Windows.

The only other option is to take the original "System Restore" CD-ROM disks, and 25-character Microsoft product-key, and reinstall Windows.

System turns on however hard drive will not cycle nor will mouse or key board activate


Turn power off and unplug power from computer.
Unplug printers,backup drives and speakers.
Open case and unplug power supply from the board.
plug power cord back in press the power button.
Of course nothing will happen.
unplug power cord again.
plug power supply back into the board.
plug power cord backup and press power switch.
If nothing happens unplug power cord again.
pull out your memory sticks and plug cord back in and press power button.
Of course not much will happen.
But really something is happening to your computer so continue.
Pull power cord and replace memory sticks.
replace power cord and press power switch.
Continue this pulling out pci cards one at a time until you find out what the problem might be.
Try different keyboards and mice too.
Good Luck

If you can't get into safe mode by pressing F9 during start-up you may have to reload windows. If you can get into safe mode, back-up data and reset the PC to the last configuration on which it worked. When you see the "Please select the operating system to start" message, press the F8 key.When the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, use the ARROW keys to select Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked), and then press ENTER.
