  1. I am getting ready to replace the hard drive on my HP Pavillion 23. It showing early signs of failure. Blue screens etc. The installation seems straight forward enough. However the rub is reinstalling windows. I don't have any media. My copy is digitally enabled, I downloaded the crate media tool from microsoft to a blank flash drive, but when opening the file, it started a setup screen which I aborted. I don't want to damage the system while trying to create a way to reinstall it. Please help. (I wish we still had the old replacement discs. lol)
  2. Just a quick note. The problem is resolved. I uninstalled the diver for the network adapter and reinstalled it.
  3. Thanks for replying Tom, The commands yousent ddn't work. The modem is for wireless broadband (WIFI). I get the message that it can't be renewed while it is disconnected. I did it earlier today whil on the phone with clear (internet provider). All I remember was the commands referred to clearing a cache, and something about "winsock". Sorry if this ll seems ignorant, but I didn't think to write the commands down as she was dictating them.
  4. The IP address keeps disappearing from the network connection. When I click on repair, e error msg says that it is unable to complete the repair. I know there is a way to reset this from the command prompt, but do not remember how. More importantly, I need to know why this is happening. I am running xp service pak 3. Thanks
  5. The problem may be the difference in operating systems. Seems to me, when I set up my wirteless network, (Windows 7).there wasw a comment about not being able to use different operating systems when it comes to sharing devices.( xp,etc.).
  6. No, it shows up as a registry entry in the current user section under run, it is in a groupimg that includes ctfmon and spyware doctor.
  7. Does any one know what FSN is? I have googles it, with no response that are relevant. I have disables it, but would like to know what it is and why all of a sudden it show up in the list of startup programs. Thanls for your help
  8. Juliet All done. Once aagain, thanks for all of your help.

  13. Hi, The computer seems to be over what was ailing it. In fact, the work done yesterday took care of a few probvlems that I thought were unrelated. I understand the need for installing the recovery console and will do that asap. along with the other items mentioned. It may be Friday before it is completed though. Thank you for all your help Pete
