Hi charles.

Common design flaw with this particular laptop. It picks up inteference from internal wireless card which randomly causes havoc with the onboard input controller. External sources can also rarely cause this strange behavior. The only thing iI can suggest is to tighten, but don't over-tighten all screws on the bottom of the laptop, removing battery and AC supply of course. A loose screw can cause lack of earthing which can generate inteference. Hope this is helpful to you.

Not sure, you should see, amongst all the led's which show when the Power / DVD or HDD are running. A small led which either looks like an antenna or has one inscribed near it.

If no, there's probably no card.

However, to connect to your wireless internet you may be able to use a PCMCIA card or a USB dongle. Just ensure the one you get is capable of decrypting at the standard you require ie WEP or WPA.

The RJ45 ethernet cable looks very much like a fat telephone chord. It plugs into the female port.

I don't get paid for advice so if this answers your problem, I would appreciate 4 thumbs.

All laptops have inbuilt wireless network cards. You would need to have a wireless access point which has internet connectivity at your home or office. If available, you need to search for the wireless network and get connected. Some networks are secured so you would have to contact the administrator for the key.

The clip on the cable faces up and the gold wires face down.

The blue screen states that it has a hardware error. Usually the problem is in the memory card. All you have to do is open your computer (cpu) and removed the memory card. Try to blow the memory slot and try to clean the memory card pins with a clean cloth and return it back to the memory slot. After that try to turn it on if it works. If not, try to replace the memory card if you have a spare.
Aside from memory card problem is the hardisk problem but usually rare. Try the memory step first before the hardisk step.
