    I cant find any reviews for this to save my life, can anyone help me

    HP 15.6" Laptop, 1.3GHz AMD Dual-Core Accelerated E-300, 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD (2000-420CA)

    Need to get my mum a real laptop, instead of the little wee netbook ive got her using. definately do not want to spend more than $400 as she wont know how to use most of it anyway. I got to be a pro at buying laptops, but now Ive forgotten all my knowledge.

    also I have it in my head that acer is shit and can catch on fire and blow up, is that true or am i making that up?

    Wallymart have a decent toshiba satellite right now for under 400.

    Does it happen in all browsers?

    Have you tried SuperAntiSpyware?

    Either use a different (clean) machine to DL (or boot into safe mode with networking and download) and install Avast free; then try Avast's pre-boot scan. I find it's real good at picking up shit the others tend to miss.

    I only use firefox. I added script blocker and it seemed to work except it's annoying when I have to turn it off to allow some embedded things.

    The solution seems to be changing your .HOSTS file.

    I recommend using the batch file here.
     
  17. Hi i'm God

    Hi i'm God TRIBE Member

    Thanks! Thats my problem. I don't know what hosts files are and I don't think I have this in my download folder so looks like i'll have to read into this a little more.

    ^The link I posted for a .hosts file talks you through the process and provides a handy batch file that does most of the work for you.

    where is your webcam located on your computer?
    I think mine got messed up when I put windows 7 on. if i search programs and files I get the Dell Webcam Console, so its got picture controls and stuff, but i can find the actual webcam thing to turn the webcam on. ???????????/

    I have a disc that says "for reinstalling dell webcam manager" should I just put that in the computer and that will put it back on?
    it was for vista tho, so will it work?
     
  21. Dirty Girl

    Dirty Girl TRIBE Member

    ok I put the disc in, and now a bunch more stuff is there but it says "no supported camera connected, please plug in to continue. "

    you bitches are never around when I need ya.

    Here is a better one.

    I just got a new router and PS3 and the old router would recognize my 2 ps3's and laptop. Since i've upgraded my wireless router they call connect find but won't discover each other. I've looked at all the settings and can't figure it out. Any help?

    I'm assuming you want to stream from the laptop to the PS3 right?

    It seems likely the old settings could be your problem.

    Easiest sure method would be to uninstall your media server program (ps3mediaserver or the like) then reinstall it, adding the new details, system name and all that of your new PS3 to the settings.

    Make and model number of laptop required.
    Look on the bottom of it on the Dell Sticker for model no.
    Also the 'latitude/satellite d894598745689' whatevers.
