    I took the advice and downloaded 4 old drivers from Dell. After installation, I was not very hopeful. However, your advice was dead on and I'm happy to report that everything is working as it should. Thanks for the feedback and the solid advice. I'll be sure to pass the word to friends about this site as well as keep it on my favorites should anything else happen to any of our 4 computers here.

    Again..thamnls for the great advice.

I had the same problem with my Dell Inspiron 8600. I stumbled upon this thread and followed the advice. I am pleased to say that the suggestion of uninstalling the keyboard driver and restarting worked great. Thanks!

Go to my computer icon, right click, properties>hardware tab>device manager, then lok down the list to keyboard, click on the + sign and right click on your keyboard and select uninstall.

 

Restart the notebook and the driver will automatically load again and should type as normal.

How do I get out of offline


Hi Murd, to get out of offline, you have to be online. That means you need to connect to a form of internet. This could be as simple as turning on your wifi on your device. Once your wifi is on, you need to connect to a router. A list usually shows up when you turn on your wifi. Choose your internet router connection, make sure it shows its connected, then try again to see if your still considered offline.

What I do transfer of email files?


When Outlook saves items to your computer, it uses a type of data file called an Outlook Personal Folders file (.pst) (Personal Folders file (.pst): Data file that stores your messages and other items on your computer. You can assign a .pst file to be the default delivery location for e-mail messages. You can use a .pst to organize and back up items for safekeeping.). If you are using a Microsoft Exchange Server account, your items are usually delivered to and saved on the mail server. To allow you to work with your messages even when you cannot connect to the mail server, Outlook offers Offline Folders, which are saved in another type of data file called an Offline Folder file (.ost) (Offline Folder file: The file on your hard disk that contains offline folders. The offline folder file has an .ost extension. You can create it automatically when you set up Outlook or when you first make a folder available offline.) on your computer.

The primary distinctions between the two types of Outlook data files are:

The Outlook .ost files are used only when you have an Exchange Server account and choose to work offline or use Cached Exchange Mode.
The Outlook .pst files are used for POP3 (POP3: A common protocol that is used to retrieve e-mail messages from an Internet e-mail server.), IMAP (IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol): Unlike Internet e-mail protocols such as POP3, IMAP creates folders on a server to store/organize messages for retrieval by other computers. You can read message headers only and select which messages to download.), and HTTP accounts. When you want to create archives or back up your Outlook folders and items on your computer, including Exchange Server accounts, you must create and use additional .pst files.

You may be have 3 options to solve your problems:

Try this:-

1. Go to Messenger>Connection Preferences> then, you choose either connection directly to the internet or connect via a proxy server, and then choose type of internet connection>OK>Sign in again... let's try this, may be you can solve this problem. OR

2. Maybe, i think you should check your firewall settings. If you use Personal Firewall, make sure it allows your connection to receiving incoming connections and allows you to use yahoo messenger,check it out, may be it blocked your yahoo messenger. OR

3. Open your Internet Explorer>Go to File>Then, 'uncheck Work Offline', make sure your Internet connection is not working offline. Then, close Internet Explorer, try to sign in your yahoo messenger.

Good Luck!

Messenger Error 80072745


This is sometimes caused by the cache left on Internet Explorer. If your internet's working fine, then follow these steps.
Close MSN Messenger
Open Internet Explorer. Set it to work offline (File > Work Offline)
Close Internet Explorer and reopen it. Now set it to work online (File > Work Offline).
Open Command Prompt (Start > Run > type "cmd" and hit enter)
Type "ipconfig /flushdns". You should recieve a message that your DNS has been successfully flushed.
You should now be able to connect to MSN Messenger. Open MSN and see if the problem is fixed.

I am trying to download windows live messenger, but when i do, it says that i am working offline, even though i have connected to internet!


FYI, just because you see a page open within your Browser, that in itself doesn't mean you're connected to the internet as the page may have been cached (saved). So to verify connectivity try to navigate to another page by clicking a link in the one you're on (such as the download link that gives you the offline error) or typing in a URL to another site and verifying connectivity. Once you have established connectivity to the Internet (not just your network) then try to download Messenger from Microsoft again.
If you have verified connectivity and still get the offline message, then try downloading Messenger from another source, maybe that will help.

It sounds like the software has become corrupted. Try a master reset...but back up everything important before you do it.

Goes offline for no reason


Assuming you have the latest updated spyware removal programmes and anti virus programmes and run a recent scan. It may be that you have some corrupt cookies etc. The first thing to do is clear temp files etc, the best programme for this is a free and spyware free programme called CCleaner which you can download from here and give it a software check and obsolete file cleanup. http://www.filehippo.com/download_ccleaner/
