I got this new notebook HP COMPAQ PRESARIO C736TU Which is a total nightmare for me as im having soo many issues with this junk.
As you all know this notebook has the worst ever driver installation errors, previously it was having a error on Inbuilt Mic, and when i return the notebook to the agents, they replaced the motherboard saying the fault was there. And now im having a driver installation issue, while been unable to connect to the web.
Im using broadband ADSL with a Prolink Hurricane 8000 USB ADSL modem, and it was working fine earlier on and it works soo fine on my other machine as well. But When i install the sound driver for HP COMPAQ PRESARIO C736TU im getting this new error msg when try to connect to the web,
Network Connection Error" Error 623 - The system could not find the phone book entry for this connection
Earlier on this was working fine, but after they have replaced the mother board im getting this and after installing the sound drivers.
And my Wireless Internet Button is not working also :(
Anyone know's how to fix this..? and wot its all abt..?
It sounds like your sound drivers may support a voice/fax modem, and after you install the driver and try to connect to the 'net, the machine is trying to use dial-up. Go into Windows "Internet Options", find "Connections", and set "Never dial a connection."
Another issue to consider. It's common (and very unpleasant) that a manufacturer will require drivers to be installed in a particular order. Make sure you are installing drivers according to the manufacturer's instructions.
For example, I once converted a Dell Laptop into a toaster by failing to install the video driver first. It made fairly nice waffle-style toast if you put four bread slices on the keyboard deck and then gently closed the lid, but it did not work well as a computer until I removed all the drivers and re-installed them in the exact order described by the driver notes...
How to solve this problem..?
And the HDD is fully formated and reformatted few times, and i installed XP last nite so its new, the things is drivers are all messed up, and hv no clue which one is which coz their with numbers and not in names
Many notebooks have drivers that are a bit troublesome at the best of times, especially when you do a clean install from XP/Vista disc rather than the restore partition/disc. It's not likely that the correct drivers are going to be on a XP/Vista disc when it's a new machine - you may be in a position where completely unsuitable drivers are being used.
Most manufacturers will, grudgingly, supply restore discs (sometimes for a small fee). However, it's often the case that correct drivers can be downloaded from the manufacturers site (in the case of HP this used to be a real pain).
they replaced the motherboardUnless the new motherboard is identical to the old (right down to the bios version) you can expect driver problems.
the HDD is fully formated and reformatted few timesOf course the hard disk is formatted, it boots and runs. Do you have an XP/Vista disk? If yes, you can begin a clean install. You may need to download drivers, but in many cases, generic drivers on the Windows CD/DVD are good enough (if not ideal).
