Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook ?

Very Odd Internet Problem

\015 The Symptoms: After browsing the internet for a while in Firefox, suddenly when I click a link, nothing happens. Well, for about a quarter of a second, the "working " icon in the top right swirls, the stop button turns red and the name of the web page on the tab flashes, but the page does not load. If I keep clicking, the page might eventually load like normal on some random try (sometimes on the first few tries, sometimes it takes up to twenty tries). The same thing happens whether I am clicking a link, selecting a bookmark, typing a web address into the address bar. It doesn't matter if its in a new tab or existing tab. Also, sometimes pages will not render correctly. Sometimes every video on YouTube says "video no longer available". Videos and flash games sometimes work and sometimes don't. If I switch to Internet Explorer while the problem is there pages do not load correctly, if at all. If I work simultaneously in FF and IE, the problem starts at the same time. Since the problem began I have not gotten good connections on my bitTorrents either and after a while, they grind to a halt.What I've Tried: Upgrading to FF 3. Clearing the cache and deleting\015\012all cookies. Uninstalling or disabling most of my\015\012add-ons including Greasemonkey. (Those three were before I realized it wasnt just a Firefox problem.) Running a virus scan\015\012with AVG. Enabling ALL of the services and start up programs in windows (I had disabled many of them about a month before all this began). Doing a system restore to a point before the problem occured. Defragmenting. Nothing has helped.Notes: This has happened on several different wireless connections, so I know its not the router. When the problem occurs, I can repair the connection and it will start working properly again for a while. I am guessing that my wireless card may be at fault. It is a Dell Wireless 1390 WLAN Mini-Card. I haven't tried using a wired connection to the router to see if it still happens. I will try that when I get home. Does anyone have any sugestions has to how to further troubleshoot this?The System: Dell Inspiron 1501 Laptop running Windows XP Home Edition Service Pack 3. \015

Answers :

HI,
\015\012 well it would be great , if you can check the same on the wired connection. I guess the problem is with the windows . Start the computer in safe mode with networking and check browsing on the wireless connection in safe mode with networking . if the same works fine . Try creating a new user a/c if the same works fine in safe mode with networking . Other wise it would be best to reset the entire computer.

Password I bought a used laptop for my son to take to high school with him. He has had this for a year without any problems. A friend of his gave him a wireless card, and now he has been on the internet with it. He got a couple of viruses, so I started uninstalling all this **** on his laptop, and then did a virus scan. It removed the viruses, and said it had to restart. We restarted it, and now it is asking for a password. It says it is protected by an administrative password. None of us has ev
