I have a few minor problems, and I was hoping someone might know how to help!
First, I guess you may need details of my system: Dell Notebook Inspiron 6000, Intel Pentium M, 1.60 GHz, 797 MHz, 1.49 GB Ram, 60 GB Hard Drive, Windows XP, Maxtor One Touch II 300 GB External Hard Drive.
My first two problems are messages I receive on startup. The first is:
"Microsoft .NET Framework. An unhandled exception has occurred in your application. If you click Continue, the application will ignore this error and attempt to continue. If you click Quit, the application will be shut down immediately. The key ‘allowexit’ does not exist in the appSettins configuration section." It then has options for "Details, Continue, or Quit"
The second message is:
Run-time error ‘53’:
File not found
Those seem more like annoyances, as I don't feel they've actually caused any major problems in my system. A bigger problem is my Ctrl-Alt-Delete function does not work. I downloaded one of those emergency utilities tools that allows me to open the TaskManager from my hard drive, but I feel like that is just a temporary fix. Is it a conflict with software I may have (like Roxio EMC 8 or my Maxtor Drive?).
Finally, and I anticipate I will just be told to get a new card, but my internal wireless card is crazy. It is a Intel ® PRO/Wireless 2200BG Connection, and it goes in and out of perfect reception all day long. I have a Linksys router in my room, not far from my laptop. My roommates in other rooms of the house have their own laptops which never have a problem with the signal. I feel like maybe the card is loose (is that possible?). I've tried reinstalling the software, and that hasn't changed anything. Can I check the internal card myself, or would I have to take it somewhere and give it to a pro?
I apologize for the long post, but thanks in advance for any help you may be able to provide!
