Well, no built-in setting in any case...

I'd do two things, if I were you.

Firstly, search for and download an "MTU" size adjuster. It'll be a very small program to download, which can tweak the size of your maximum transmission unit. This is the packet size that your computer can handle. If you're on DSL, you'll want 1492 or thereabouts. (the program will have defaults based on the type of internet you have).

Secondly, look into a download manager such as "getright" or even firefox's built-in download manager. Both of these programs can resume broken downloads... so you'll at least not have wasted any time/bandwidth.

Big downloads often do this because of timeouts, which both of my suggestions should help with or fix completely. =-]

Explorer crashing

Try this when you have started up your computer load up your dos shell, Inside the dos shell type chkdsk /f this will check your registry and other file sources and will automatically fix any errors within your registry etc at a certain point it will stop and report that it could not perform an action as windows is currently in use do you wish to run this the next time windows starts type y for yes and hit enter, Restart your computer and this will start the check disk and fix feature and once it finishes if it has found errors it will generate a report if it does not it will load as usual. If this does not work contact Dell technical support and if they can not help. Worst case scenario backup your data where possible and format your hard drive and re-install windows. I hope this helps.

I bought a Zanussi ZF4 fridge/freezer second hand about two weeks ago. When I installed it I made sure that it was left to stand for 12 hours before turning on and that it was cleaned thoroughly. The unit...

It is possible that it is the thermostat, and if not as you hear the compressor starting shortly then stopping, and redoing that many times.
Your compressor is certainly out of order and must be replaced by a professional, that means to dessolder the current compressor, and replace it with the new one, and change the gas.
So major intervention and at least 2 hours of work.
In the end, you will have a new heart for this great fridge.

Laptop stops loading after password screen...

Go back into system restore and restore the system to a previous point. This is most commonly a virus that locks down your icons. If you can get it to restore to a prior point then make sure you run your antivirus scanner and look for viruses and get rid of them. Hope this helps. Thanks!!

Screen Goes Black When Game Is Inserted

Your laser could be bad, that is my idea for the situation. Your laser probably loads to a certain point and then just stops for some reason. You can try adjusting the potentiometers up 10 percent if your technologically advanced or try and replace the whole laser/drive.

Bike not starting

everyday and it was fine. Yesterday went to a friend's house to ride. Shut her down to wait for him to warm up. When I tried to fire it back up it turned once and stopped. Tried again, turned once, and stopped. Then tried it again, it did not even turn anymore. I repeated this about 10 times with no turning. It just makes a wheeeeee sound. No clicking. Battery is fine. Have it on the charger just to be sure, but I'm 99 percent sure its fine. I'm thinking relay, but so far, all the threads I've read about relay problems have a clicking sound. I have no clicking... I'm searching now, as we speak, but if anyone could help me out,,I saw a relay failure post about a month or so ago. Could be that. For me, the probs I have had like you describe. 1) battery was fried, wouldn't hold charge. (bought new battery) 2) sidestand switch short. Bypass mod is easy job. 3) fuel pump wire shorted (is your pump coming on and priming at key-on?) after fixing those through the years I haven't had any start issues hassles like this suck. I feel for you mate. Best of luck to you though. ,,,
