  1. Hi, When I logged on today i selected firefox and it asked my which profile i wanted to use(something i have never seen before) there was only one listed "Default" I selected default and it said this profile is already running(IT wasnt) so i made a new profile and managed to get into fire fox. My problem now is I can get into firefox but none of my bookmarks etc are in there as i am stuck in the new profile. Does anyone have any idea how i can switch back to the original profile? i cannot see any buttons to select this and the help section doesnt really tell me anything. IT is firefox 1.0.1. Cheers Martyn
  2. Thanks for the help guys, I removed the CPU and then reseated it and now the pc works fine. Dont ask me why Cheers Martyn
  3. Update. I have now tried the motherboard setup outside of any case, the problem is still there. I reset the BIOS and the pc started to runas per normal i set the bios up, rebooted and it got as far as the xp screen then shut down. Every time i restart it does the same sometimes it gets slighty further eg 5-6 secs more but it always shuts down before getting to the desktop. I cannot fathom this out, why would just changing the case cause all these problems? I am wondering about the power supply, could it be that it is not quite powerful enough? would that cause these symptoms? Thanks for your help Cheers Martyn
  4. ok, update, i replaced everything putting back just the minimum needed to run the system to eliminate other components causing the problem. The siren type beeping has now stopped. The pc starts to boot but after 5 secs it shuts down I cannot get it to do anything other than run for 5 secs. Any clues?
  5. Hi, I have just replaced my case and now when i start the pc (Asus A7N266-VM Board, Athlon xp 2000 cpu 512k ram) i get an annoying siren type noise from the on board speaker and the pc shows nothing on the screen. Any idea why it would be doing this i am presuming something has been put back wron but i have double checked and it still does it. Cheers Martyn
  6. Cheers swimmer, it would seem the problem has been fixed after the third total installation of the card. I have done spyware checks with adaware, spybot and microsoft anti and i have none on this pc. God only knows what went wrong as it has been working fine for months. Must have been a software issue somewhere. I hope it has gone for good Many thanks for all the help Martyn
  7. Thanks for the help. ok, update on the problem. I can ping my isp when the browser is not working i can also receive new email through thunderbird. I tried all of the available pc card drivers and it does the same with any of them. I tried an old11mb sitecom card i have and that works fine so i now know it is the card. Could it be that the card is faulty or do you think i just need to sort out the software issue? Cheers Martyn
  8. Sorry, yes it is a wireless network running a D-link Di-624 Router and Airplus wireless cards. I cannot see that it is anything wrong with the hardware as i can sit an exact replica of my system next to it running on the same network and everything works fine. I thought maybe a virus so i have scanned with AVG and trend online and nothing is found. I am running XP Pro Sp2 by the way. Thanks Martyn
  9. Hi, I have rather a strange problem with my laptop. When i try to get web pages most of the time it works but sometimes it says it cannot find the page i have requested. All of the other pcs on the same network work perfectly so i know it is something to do with the laptop only. I am running firefox but i have the same problem with opera or IE6. It seems like the browser is not getting through to the network as there is no network activity lights when it is malfunctioning, yet turn the pc off and back on and hey presto it usually works. The network is connected and fully functional as i can see all the opther pcs and get files from them, i can even download my email its just the browser. Does anyone have an answer for me, its really beginning to bug me. Thanks Martyn
  10. Hi, I use a senao bridge to connect to my wisp, it has settings on it for Fragmentation Threshold (2346), RTS Threshold(2432) and Maximum burst time(650). Any idea what these settings do and could changing them make my downloads faster? Thanks Martyn Tha
  11. Hi, thanks for the quick reply, repairing does not seem to work, occasionally it does say it is connected but in a very random way. I am thinking there is a problem somehwere with the software for the device. Is there any way to remove the icon in the system tray and stop it telling me it is not connected? then it would not bother me. Thanks Martyn
  12. I have a d-link DWL120 wireless adaptor attached to my legacy free IPAQ, when you turn the pc on it tells me no connection can be made to the network, the signal strength meter is at full and i can surf the web and access the network. It is just very annoying to have a little box pop up every 1 minute to tell you it has no connection. The network icon in the system tray has a X through it(Yet everything works) any ideas on how i could fix this? i have tried uninstalling and reinstallling. thanks Martyn
