How do i connect two pc together

If they are alrady on te same router / WiFi, make a drive or folder 'shared' and then on the other use 'Map network drive' If not, then just use any old Ethernet cable to link them (both PC's should be happy enough to set a default IP addresses and 'see' each other) - modern PC's don't need special 'switch over' cables (a 5m Ethernet cable from the £1 shop will work fine) On the PC you want to 'expose' data, you 'Share' the folder (right click for the folder 'properties', look for 'security/sharing' etc). On the other you 'map network drive' (if asked for a user name/log-in, use the account on the OTHER PC ..)

Dell mtc2 pc wont light the monitor, a and b diagnostic light are yellow, c and d are green

In control panel go to Device Manager, clk the little arrow next to Display adapters, Rt click the adapter & uninstall that adapter (if asked do not remove the drivers). Restart your computer & see if that reinstalls the driver and cures your problem. If not your fan or other malfunction on your Video Driver card is imminant & you may have to replace your card. Do a Search for how to replace your video card for your model & you will be able to find a video that tells you how.

Multimedia audio controller driver missing

Hi,

If you have the disc which came with the motherboard, use it to install the audio controller. However, you can just go to device manager by either:

For Windows Vista and 7
- Click start -> type in "devmgmt.msc" on the startsearch box -> press Enter key

Fow Windows XP
- Click start -> Run -> Type "devmgmt.msc" on the box -> press Enter key

In device manager, right click on the "Unknown devices" and select "Update driver" button. Search the web to find and automatically install the audio driver. (Make sure that you have an internet connection.)

Hope this helps.
