Only solution is to buy, or make on your own, a parallel port password removal key. You can probably get a cheap one on eBay for around $10, or make one using an old, parallel printer cable. The wiring schematics is available for free (just google it). Plug the key into the parallel printer port, turn on the laptop, and the CMOS password will be removed.

Your device should have an in-built 56k modem, which you can plug a phone line into to get dial-up internet. However, that's a slow and painful way to use the internet.

More practical, but still difficult, would be to trawl IT retailers or eBay for PCMCIA network cards. You can obtain cards with physical ethernet ports, wireless cards, or various other networking interface. PCMCIA cards are also being phased out, so they could be tricky to find, but that would definitely be the best method.

Go to the manufactuer of your flash drive and see if they have a driver for your operating system. Also try the right side USB ports on your laptop as those are usually 2.0, depending on how old or new your laptop is, and some flash drives will only initialize correctly using a 2.0 port.

Have a great day.

Unplug the power cable then remove the battery and let it sit out for a while. Then put it back in and try it. Sometimes the battery can cause issues. not saying this is the absolute fix, but it's a starting point. Post a response if this doesn't help and we can take the next step to try and troubleshoot it.

Your post is not very clear on the exact problem you are having. If your issue is that some web pages have large amounts of blank white space to the right or both left and right of the web page, then the issue is you have a high resolution LCD and the web page was written using page frames. (If this is the case, the web page is being displayed as designed and there is no fault to the system)

If that is not the issue, then post specific details as to what you are seeing and what you are doing when the issue occurs.
