Dual monitor setup

Assuming you are using Windows Vista:

All you have to do is connect your laptop to a monitor via a VGA port (located on either the side or at the back of your laptop - it's the port with about 15 holes).

Once connected , you will need to configure how your 2nd monitor will function - as an extended or duplicate monitor. To set this you will need to go to Display Settings > and select your option.

How to find out my proxy server address

I bet you do not need or want any proxy server. I bet you question really is how to get internet connected, right? first off what OS is this, XP> we can not see you, your PC nor your OS. (whats connected to PC, nor if it has wifi options) is this IE11 your browsers , cant guess that either,? why not use an Ethernet, Lan cable CAT5/6 and plug in the PC to the router and it all works like magic, that be first. if the PCs lan jack (ethernet ) is dead. (and other PCs work on your router) do they./ then we go to device manager and look see that? then see if the lan chip has driver. network marked, red/yellow or unknown is bad. if missing the get it from HP. HP has zero support on old PCs, it's too old, its in fact 16 years old. support ended . 2007 (17-10 = x) came with 10/100 Ethernet, new (spec sheet says) slow. that is. but what chip that is , is very hard to find out this old why waste time and money on PC worth $5 used.? it came with windows 2000 or XP new. which is it? if the driver is good, or the unknown chip there, ethernet the when you connect to the router the connection made automatically then running relic old IE 6? you see proxy question tell it no, and that sets automatic , gate way ip address to your router. and just works out of the gate. install firefox v56 and its more easy. to run and not get bogged down in proxy settings. avoid IE versions below 11, as all OLD IE's, are virus magnets and zero support, use Firefox, on all old PCs, not updated to W7 !!! IE = internet exploder browsers) show just getting a connection, only. browsing is a whole other matter, and 20 browsers free are common. http://www.pcdied.com/DevMan/internet.html

C:\Windows\Panter\unattend.xml file is corrupted

Why are you worried about this? You are getting a warning that the hard drive is about to die. In your place, I would copy any data I wanted to keep to the desktop and then replace the hard drive. You can then image the original drive to the new one and try the restore again. The Panther\unattend.xml file is created and Windows uses it during the restore process in order to know what to do, copying it from another computer (if you can find one) would probably totally mess up the installation. The reason it cannot be parsed is probably because it was created on a section of the hard drive that has already failed - remember, your hard drive is dying.

There might be a PC-Card sound card that supports 5.1 or 7.1 sound. Your system as it is won't support it. There might even be a USB sound card.

why are your using DELL any thing on any HP>??? so wrong that. there is no free anything, (even lunch) for sure not any OS, no OS stated btw, windows what? (guess at VISTA) my guess is you want this old dog to run! an 11 year old laptop. HP does not sell HP media recovery kits for this old pc. (CD kits) nor does Microsoft. now. (only w7 and 10) this PC came with Citrix, OS or windows, VISTA 32 or 64. Vista is now officially dead at MS, and at HP.(see exceptions) HP does not sell vista disks, but the drivers are supported here. as are manuals there, still there, lucky you after 11 years. hint soon to be gone.!

I am traveling and cannot connect to certain WIFII connections.

why not ask them, or other around you obviously using that. try to know, that each place you go they have rules. there are less wide open ad hoc networks now. do to folks doing ******* things there and the owner can be liable. first is range, its a weak radio, and if too far it cant work or is slow. you will need a password to get in. in most places here. at 1 air port, its password and my other air port ,they let you in PW free, but you must sign a page that tell them you dont break the rules that filters all your cruising, (has huge blocking of vast URL) that is the way of the future, blocks, rules and sign in PW. at one air port the password is on all vertical pillar in the air port. clear as day. UPS requires and account, all do. l get one, use it. unless doing tracking blind. sure. again next time at XRAY (a store, or whatever) ask them, learn to talk, walk to the counter, and say can i use your wifi, and how do I they will say , the SSID, the SSID is the wifi broadcasted name. you click that and enter a pasword most places do not run AD HOC now, sorry, but those days are shinking fast, the golden days of no rules. are over.

Sound Problem with Headphone

First try the headphones in a different machine, such as an mp3 player or cd player to make sure the headphones still work.

Try going to the start button, then settings and control panel. Then select "Sounds and Audio devices" Down at the bottom you should see "Speaker settings." Click the "Advanced" button and then select stereo headphones.

Then, place the headphones into the green audio jack (or the headphone jack up front if you have them), play some music, and then gently wiggle the jack to see if some of the sound makes it into the headphones. If not, try slowly pulling the headphones out of the jack while the music is plaaying. you might find that the jack has slipped a little and may play only if your connector is slightly pulled out or more firmly pushed in. If his helps, then your audio connector is loose and you should replce the sound card. If the card is on the motherboard, you can disabled it when you put a new card in.

Is it via a "web-mail" interface, such as Google Gmail, or Yahoo! Mail, or Microsoft Hotmail, or a similar interface offered by you ISP (Internet Service Provider), e.g., http://webmail.charter.net ?

Or, are you using Mozilla Thunderbird, or Microsoft Outlook, or Windows Mail, or Microsoft Outlook Express to download the E-mail to your computer?

If any of the latter, then your ISP should be able to provide you with "technical support" on how to configure those E-mail agents.
