How do i turn on my computer?

Hi - The power button is on the left side. Locate the speaker. Then there is a headphone jack and a microphone jack. Next is your power button. You may not see it because there is a little cover over it. I believe you just have to skide this cover to get to your power button. This is an older machine so just in case you don't have a manual I've included a link for one. If this solves your problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If you need more help just add a comment and I'll be happy to help. Thanks and have a nice day.

No sound

Windows xp will normally load the audio driver, if service pack 2 and 3 are included.

I need antivires

There are plenty of free antivirus programs. I prefer AVG and Microsoft Security Essentials. Do not install more than one antivirus though, it can slow your computer down significantly.

I get logon message The system cannot log you on

Here are the recommended steps to connect to a wireless base router 1. Check and remove power from both your router and the DSL ROUTER/CABLE ROUTER MODEM 2. Wait one complete minute until applying power to modem then wait one minute before applying power to wireless router. 3. Ensure you have green lights across both devices, specifically, the recieved and sent lights. These same lights will tend to blink rapidly when there is active data, at times this will still blink, and a DNS error will prevent you from connecting to the internet. If this is the case, call your ISP Internet service provider 4. Check your authentication Security key on your router first, then check all your wireless devices to ensure they are on the same network name, key, and channel with the same type of encryption as the router 5. Start one device at a time and check for connectivity, if your still experiencing a problem, check the settings on all your wireless adapters, device drivers, internet browser settings, firewalls and proceed. 6. still have problems, connect a rj45 cable from the router directly to your computer to at least see if your wireless settings are bad or if the router may be bad. 7. Contact your ISP to determine if your receiving singal 8. Avoid using a splitter or parital power backup for yours routers 9. Still having problems, change your wireless router only after your ISP changes their faulty modem 10.Attempt the same process when setting up your new wireless router and or modem

Have a toshiba tecra 8100 with a Linux operating


To the best of my knowledge most Linux distributions does not have internet explorer thus you need to use the following command to install it:

1. Open a terminal window:
2. copy and paste the following command.

$ wget http://www.tatanka.com.br/ies4linux/downloads/ies4linux-latest.tar.gz
$ tar -zxvf ies4linux-latest.tar.gz
$ cd ies4linux-*
$ ./ies4linux

Most distributions have fire fox built into them thus you can download it directly.

I hope this was Very Helpful, please od reply if you have any questions and update me with the version of linux and the distribution if you need further help.

Thanks for using Fixya.com
