Outlook 2016 Export Account Settings?

Q: Outlook 2016 Export Account Settings?

I've just done a clean install of Windows 10 on another PC; I've also installed Office 2016.

After all the fuss created with previous version of Outlook, I can't believe that Outlook 2016 still doesn't have an option to Export Account Settings. Has anyone got a way to do this?

Preferred Solution: Outlook 2016 Export Account Settings?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi everyone I have a Netgear N wireless router that I bought and have been using since together with an adtec modem on my at amp t internet sevice My modem went out and I replaced it with the now recommended replacement modem which is the Motorola As a result and in doing so my settings are having to be reset on my N router for my wireless signal settings Resetting Netgear N300 on router... to be used for my wierless devices In trying to do so and in going through the setup Resetting settings on Netgear N300 router... of the router again I ve discovered in logging into the Netgear website to recover reset the router settings for the new modem setup I m being told by Netgear that the N router I bought came with only a day tech support and that I can purchase a tech support extended plan for for yr or for yrs for them to be able to help me and synchronize and reset the router settings Quite honestly I can t see spending this much extra money on support for a router that cost me in the first place I may as well just buy another router for to get another day tech support and to provide support in setting up the new one but it s the principle of the thing and it s such a waste to trash the present router when it is in perfect working order otherwise Then again if this is how shoddy and shysterish Netgear s tech support is I don t believe I would want to support them or in anyway encourage them in their use of a policy that is so unfair and lacking in flexibility to such a small assistance request to reset this modem which would not take them but maybe minutes or less My question therefore is this Has anyone out there experienced a similar or like situation and is there a workaround or another solution to this other than going through Netgear to reset the router s settings Is there a way to recover or discover the settings and reset them manually myself I very much appreciate any help anyone can offer and I thank you all in advance for any help and any advice anyone can offer Thanks alot nbsp

A:Resetting settings on Netgear N300 router...

Hey drpepper. You can manually reset your router settings to its default settings as they were when you bought it. I would disconnect the router from the modem and just use the simple procedure to reset the router. You can then access the router setup page and change the default password, network name (SSID), and set up your encryption mode (wpa2 preferred) and create a password/network key to secure your router. Save any changes you make, and when done,power off the router. Power on your modem, wait a minute,then power up the router, wait a minute, then see if you can detect your network. All of the info for doing this is in the N300 router setup manual, with the reset procedure on page 39.

We just bought a monitor U2713H direct from Dell.

When we click on Factory Reset, the monitor doesn?t go back to Factory default setting.

-In particular, Contrast/Brightness: 0.
In terms of Color Setting, Input color Format: None.
Preset Modes: Movie

-Then we click on Reset Color Settings, Input Color Format: RGB, Preset Modes: Standard.

-When click on Factory Reset again, Contrast/Brightness and Color Setting come back to the same condition as above (Contrast/Brightness are 0, Input color Format: None.
Preset Modes: Movie).

-After we try to set up Contrast/Brightness to 50/50, we shut down desktop or turn off the power button on the monitor. Then we turn on computer or turn on power button on the monitor, Contrast/Brightness are 0, Input Color Format: None, Preset Modes: Movie.

-In summary, all menu settings can?t be saved by the monitor and Factory Reset doesn?t work.

Any idea would be highly appreciated. Thank you a lot in advance

Hi!

I'm about to purchase Total War: Rome II and want to run it with "Ultra settings" and high framerate. My configuration is:

Motherboard: GA-EP35-DS3
Processor: Duo Core 2 E6850 3.0 GHz
GPU: GeForce 880 GT 512 MB

RAM: 4 GB DDR2

Do I have to upgrade my hardware? If so, what would you recommend? Would a new
GPU be enough?

I need all the help I can get. Thanks!
 

A:Ultra settings...

To answer your question, yes you will have to update, the 8800 GT is way out of date and I don't know for sure if you can run it on low settings with decent frame rate let alone Ultra. The Core 2 Duo will also be outdated by todays standards but for me the game is not too CPU intensive.

You can start by grabbing a new GPU, something like a R9 270X or GTX 760 will be enough to get Ultra with reasonable framerate, but your CPU will be the bottleneck next.

At this point, I would just about say start a new system, because I don't think reaching Ultra in Rome Total War 2 is going to be easy with a Core 2 Duo and for sure not on an 8800 GT

A:2 Monitors Have The Same Settings But Show Up Different Sizes

I have mostly fixed the problem! In the resolution settings there is an option that says make text and other items larger or smaller. For some odd reason all of the different monitors were set to different sizes. After switching all those to a small size. That immediately fixed the issue with games looking blown up and gargantuan on my 60 inch tv. But the charms bar was still huge. So going to the settings through the load up screen and not desktop mode in windows 8 I went to the settings and in the display settings there was another option for toolbars and whatnot which was set to default only on the 60 inch tv. When I set that to small like the rest that fixed the issue with that. So everything seems to be fixed right........ sadly no its a lot better than it was but not completely fixed yet.

While for gaming its definatly fixed. When I move an internet window from one to the other monitors the zoom sizes still change size between the 3 monitors. While this isn't a big issue since its something I can deal with. I would like to fix it if I can. What I would really like is to know if theres a way I can lock the zoom mode betwixt all 3 monitors for the internet settings. I checked the internet options and didn't notice anything that stood out to me for locking for fixing that.

When I was at my work computer it has 4 monitors, 3 are the same and 1 is a large tv. I noticed that when I moved stuff into the large tv such as an internet window, it didn't change the zoom size on my work station so im wondering what the difference is between them.

On a side note. For some reason when I start up games now most start up in stereoscopic mode. I figured out that ctrl+t shuts it off in most cases but it didn't used to do that and in my NVidia settings I cant seem to find any option for 3d vision/stereoscopic mode. This may require a full post but figured id ask it here for now.

Which model Router do you have. So we all can help you out.
Disconnect the WAN (internet yellow or blue port) first
Power cycle the Router unplug it

Power cycle the modem first wait 30 seconds then connect the power.
Turn on back the Router
Connect the Router to the Modem
It should get IP from your ISP and DNS Servers should be one to two of them listed.
All PCs on your network should be powered cycled or rebooted a this point.

Notice: Your New Router comes with CD use that to setup it up your new router. Leave the defaults active unless you know what your doing and until you get use too your router features.

Up until recently, I'd never been particular about peripherals. In fact, it is only now that I've begun to experiment with the features of my mouse driver -- all of which are quite new to me. So I'm curious as to what mouse settings you guys use.

For now, mine are as follows:

- Polling rate is still at default 8ms.
- Mouse speed is at 6/11 in Windows, enhanced pointer precision off, MarkC fix enabled.
- Mouse dpi settings are at 1200 dpi on a 1920x1080 monitor. I toggle down to 400 dpi when necessary.
- Usually, I have the in-game mouse sensitivity set to medium or low.

I'm using a Corsair M60.

What settings do you use when gaming? Do you use these same settings for everything else?

I don't really have access to my desktop right now, so this is a wild guess on my memory, on what I use:

Windows sens. something like 6/10.
1080p monitor.
Maxed polling rate (1000?)
2600DPI on desktop
3400DPI on FPS and other usual games
5600DPI for some weird games with slow movement, or LoL/HoN/DotA (HoN I play mainly) or other RTS as necessary.

Hello.

GPU: ASUS GTX 580 direct cu II overclocked to 878 Mhz
Motherboard: Intel DH67CL
RAM: APACER 8GB DDR3 @ 1333 Mhz

I was trying to play Rome: Total War (a game made way back in 2004) at max settings and at 1600x900 resolution (which is the max resolution of my monitor) and I get an average framerate of 20 fps, often even lower. So I checked GPU usage during the game, turns out it never reached 20%. But when I lowered the graphics settings, the fps immediately jumped to 60. As far as I can tell from task manager, there seems to be high CPU usage during gaming, but it doesn't tell how much exactly. So does this mean higher graphics settings require faster CPU clocks and not just a faster GPU? Or does it just mean there's a stability problem with my PC that's affecting its performance?

All LCD monitors have a native resolution. If you look through the documentation that came with your LCD monitor, it will tell you what the native or optimal resolution should be. Looking at your picture you have above, you are NOT running at the 19" LCDs native resolution. Most likely you need to be running: 1366x768, 1440x900, 1680x1050, or 1920x1080. Crank that slider all the way to the right, that is usually where the LCD screens native resolution resides. Hope this helps, take care!

I Have got the following configuration: Asus motherboard with Intel Dual Core processor, 2 GB of DDR2 RAM and one 80GB P-ATA and one 500 GB S-ATA HDD. I have installed Windows in the S-ATA HDD and decided to use the P-ATA HDD as additional storage drive. Now the problem is, sometimes the system cannot detect the P-ATA HDD, and sometimes when it detects it appears as Primary IDE Slave and in that case the SATA drive disappears from the boot priority drive list in bios setting. So the system cannot boot. Presently I am using my PC without connecting the P-ATA drive. But I want to use both of them. In this situation can u masters help me out of this problem? Thanks in advance........ Kabiraj.

Is the drive 80GB unformatted? Did you format the drive when starting the restore? This is known as a "destructive" restore. If you didn't, it is possible that the old Vista files are still on the drive, along with the new files, taking up the space

Is it new? Does it still have a warranty? If it still has a warranty, take it back so you don't void the warranty.

No , 6850 crossfired wont run the game LOL JK JK.
Of course. Games need about 3 cores now adays, Crysis 2 BF3, use up about 60 percent of total CPU power. Your CPU and RAM is more then enough. You need a good video card now, and you have that in the 6850. You have them in crossfire, you should be able to play any game @ 1080p 8x CSAA 16xAF high quality,, game on high quality settings. gl

Hello Techies!

Lately I found an old 75f monitor near the garbage and, as the good scavenger that I am, immediately took it under my possession. The problem with it is that every time the monitor turns off and on, be it with the OS's auto turn off monitor option or when I turn the computer on, the settings on it get scrambled up and I have to set the color settings and the screen deformations all over again.

You guys have any idea what might be causing this problem?

Thanks in advance

This was a cheap poorly built monitor to begin with... Since you like to salvage electronics, you must be good at soldering. Open up the case and resolder all the connections on the board containing the CRT socket. The signal cable should connect to this CRT board too

Hi!

First of all, I dont know if this is the right spot to ask about hosting, but since Techspot has helped me with a lot of computer related problems, I thought Id give it a try...

Anyways, Im about to buy a hosting plan from Hostgator, but I want to use one account to host at least 3 different sites (top domains, like firstpage.com, secondpage.com and thirdpage.com). I know the reselling account would be the most effective, but I dont need to have a different cPanel for each user.

Can this be done with a Baby plan? Im going to buy domain names from another company, but I guess that doesnt matter. Im new to all this hosting stuff, so any help will be appreciated.

Thanks

A:Returned laptop to factory settings, yet strange problem getting worse

First thought is it sounds as if the 'left-click' is sticking or repeating very fast.
Does the same effect happen if you use the touch pad or a plugged-in USB mouse?
Can you go into Control panel, hardware, devices and printers, mouse, 'Pointer options' tab. Set the 'Set pointer speed' in the centre of the scale.
Then untick the box 'Enhance pointer precision'
In the 'Buttons' tab, click 'Restore defaults'
See if that makes any difference.

I know the speakers work. help please
 

A:Resetting default audio settings?

You have probably made your headphones default, and turned off the speakers.
In the taskbar, near the clock, right-click on the speaker icon. Choose 'Playback devices'. In the new window, do you see 1 or 2 items? Speakers and below that Speaker/headphones. Right-click on what is showing, and in the list tick the options, 'Show disabled devices' and 'Show disconnected devices'.
Now you should have 'Speakers' line showing, so right-click on it, and choose 'properties'. At the bottom of the box, you see a drop-box that gives 2 options. Make it to be 'Use this device-enable'. Click OK. That should work.

A:Are my settings safe for linked 2wire & netgear routers?

I think you'd be better setting up your AT&T router as a switch, and then running your Netgear router as your main router.

DHCP should be setup on the Netgear router, and then that used to assign IP addresses to your networked devices.

Your AT&T one should have wireless disabled, DHCP disabled, and be assigned a static IP address. You can then use a cat 5 ethernet cable to connect the two routers.

Most of all, I would be setting up the AT&T as a DMZ, because you want the extra security it provides by isolating the internet from your private network (Netgear router).

In your situation you want the AT&T router to act purely as a switch, and nothing more. Your Netgear router can handle everything else. You also need to be aware that setting up a DMZ is more for public network devices, e.g. for webservers, so you can place them in the "public" area for net access, and hide your private network (Netgear in your case) away from it. You do not want to be connecting any devices to your AT&T router if it has DMZ enabled.

Here is a good, brief read on what DMZ is.

Prior to resetiing? You mean you used the options to restore to factory condition? Then you almost certainly just need to re-install the driver for the blue-tooth device. Read the manual, or the website support for the laptop, where you will also find the necessary driver if you cant find it on the HDD or CD's that came with the PC

I just reinstalled Windows XP professional (on my other computer), due to a viral disaster. I cannot access internet or email through that computer, but others using the router work fine. It says that the adapter card is working fine, but no IP address can be identified. I looked and found the driver installed, but could it be bad? The virus didn't impact the connection, but the re-install lost it. There is only the 1394.sys network connection. It lacks a "local area connection". I'll add more details as needed. Any suggestions? Thanks kindly. Let me know if I should be posting on a different forum.

Hello,

I am currently trying to fix an Acer laptop for a friend of mine and from what I can tell it looks as if her laptop continues to reset itself back to its original settings. For example, the desktop background goes back to the slandered picture, desktop icons that were once there are gone and programs have to be reinstalled. Neither of us have an exact cause for this issue, except she did mention how she had a router problem within the last week, but I wouldn't see how that would constantly be affecting the laptop itself when the router has been fixed. Every day the computer resets itself and its becoming a frustrating task for her and she's just about given up on it.

Is there, perhaps, a control I could change? Could it be a possible virus or malware issue?

Please help, I'm becoming a little desperate for help myself.

Thank you,
Ashley

I'm debating wether or not I should buy the nvidia 9800gtx, can it run mw2 on high settings without sli and crysis? Well any new game on high without sli, or should I try to get a 9800 gx2. I'm on a budget though,, less then 200 dollars and I don't have room to sli, that's why I ask about gx2, can anyone help??
 

A:Can an Nvidia 9800 GTX run Crysis on the highest visual settings

When I first read the question, I thought you posted this 2 years ago.

For 200 dollars, you can get the latest released GTX460 768MB. Unless you're not talking about US dollars (if its not, pls tell us conversion rate).

A:Overclock help needed - Q8200, fan, FBS, BIOS settings?

What's affordable, how much are you looking to spend?

For a cheaper cooler I really like the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro. Another good one is the Cooler Master Hyper 212.

Something to keep in mind is that overclocking is not going to free up CPU cycles. It'll make things run faster but if an application is currently taking 100% of your CPU, overclocking is not going to clear that up.

trying to set up an xbox live connection through a laptop with a mobile broadband usb dongle. I've set up the connection no problem, now i just need to set the MTU settings.

I'm doing this through command prompt with the command "netsh interface ipv4 set subinterface "Local Area Connection" mtu=1364 store=persistent"

and it came back with the message "the requested operation requires elevation <run as administrator>"

this doesn't make sense as I am logged in with the ONLY user account, and i checked the account settings, and it is definitely the admin account (it would have to be, as it is the only account on the laptop)

i dont understand the problem

can anyone help?

thanks in advance for your time
 

A:Trying to set MTU settings - it says "run as administrator" - I AM administrator

I could be wrong, but do you not need to elevate to admin to do that command in cmd?

I didnt think it ran as admin all the time, but I'm more of a linux person...

This might be of help... http://www.howtogeek.com/forum/topic/run-cmd-as-administrator

It looks like you could shortcut cmd.exe to the desktop and in properties select to run as administrator...

A:Router settings and IP address

Really need MFG/Model number of the modem AND the router (if you have separate devices),

but, get a command prompt (run->cmd) and enter ipconfig /all
the gateway address will be the IP address of the router.

launch your browser and enter http:// followed by the gateway address followed by a / (slash)

you should get the router login screen

yes, the primary hd needs to be detected in order for your OS to boot. make sure the hard drive is connected to the right header and make sure the boot order sequence is correct. you can also try setting the jumper on the hard drive to master.

Hello there! I wanted to ask a question.

Can the PC Speakers be damaged by increasing the Sample Rate and Bit Depth of the sound output?


My speakers are very old(~10 years or so) and my PC is quite new, and a friend of mine set the audio format to 24bit/192.000 Hz and the speakers stopped responding.
I have an on-board sound card (Realtec HD audio on Gigabyte GA-MA770T-UD3P model). My speakers have not had any problems at all for the past 10 years, and just stopped working after setting the settings to that (24bit/192kHz)

Any ideas?


Thanks a lot!

PS: If you can scientifically support your opinion, it would be even greater, as I'm still arguing with my friend, but my field of expertice has nothing to do with computers or electronics


Thanks again for your time,
Regards,
Morkai
 

A:Can the Speakers be damaged from modifying the sound output settings?

The can be damaged if you "modify" by turning up the volume to excessive output... Many speakers will burn out very quickly.
But what you describe as modifying the Sample Rate and Bit Depth won't damage the speakers... But can sometimes damage some of the other sound electronics.

I am just about ready to upgrade my video card to an 8800gt, but I definitely know that I'm going to have to change the stock fan settings of the card in order to maintain a decent temperature. I'm planning on using Rivatuner 2.06 to do this, so my question is, which would be better for the card? Setting a constant fan speed (such as 60% no matter what) or having the fan speed fluctuate with the temperature (such as 60% speed at 75 degrees, 85% speed at 90 degrees, and 100% at 100 degrees)? And by the way, I was just throwing out numbers at random, so those wouldn't be what I would plan on setting them to.
 

A:8800GT Fan speed settings?

it is better for the life of the card if the fan speeds vary. I can tell you from experience the 8800gt fan is quite loud you would not want it constantly spinning at high rpms even when you are not playing games.

Also i am currently using default fan speeds with no problems, it is a little bit hot but nothing risky so far. Although my case does have great airflow

Hi Tim,
different core temps (at least different readings) are common for for the athlon x2 series. I have a x2 4200 in another machine and it is almost identical to your readings. I even have a copper Zalman 7000 'flower' series cooler on it. i would try a different program to confirm temps, however 55c is well within recommended operating temps. max temp for the 4200 is 71c.
here is another program you can use to confirm your temps. http://www.cpuid.com/hwmonitor.php.
I have not been impressed with the Zalman copper coolers for the Athlon x2's not that they let the cpu overheat, but the 'heat pipe' coolers seem to work so much better.
hope that helped

Hi Guys:
Just new to this forum and thought you might help me to solve a problem. Here's the situation:
ASUSTek A7V8X-X Motherboard
Award Software Inc. BIOS Version: Asus A7V8X-X ACPI Revision 1007 - Date: 11/13/2003
CPU: AMD Athlon XP2700
Socket A (462) - Core Voltage: 1,680V
Operating System: Windows XP Home Edition

My computer kept re-booting and I sent it in for repair and thought the problem was fixed. It ran for about 1 hour and quit. I looked at the BIOS settings and noticed they were set to 100 mhz. I changed it to 133/33 and it seemed to work better. This forum suggested elsewhere that it should be set to 166/33.
I tried that and a red message popped up about something not in sync.

Any ideas?

A:What jumper settings for added drive?

The first hard drive (80GB) and the CD drive are jumpered correctly. If you only have one device connected to each of the two IDE controllers on the motherboard, each may be set to master or cable select (if supported by mobo). For SATA drives it is not necessary to change any jumper settings from the original default positions for desktop applications. One SATA drive per motherboard SATA connector. Master and slave does not really apply to SATA drives (hard drives or optical drives).

Of course, before you can use the newest SATA hard drive, it must be formatted first. Go to Disk Management and see if it is recognized there. If so, go ahead and format it from there and then you should be good to go. This is Windows XP, correct?

To get to Disk Management: Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Computer Management > Storage > Disk Management.

I just discovered tokbox.com, works pretty neat.

I've got an old Logitech QuickCam Pro4000 and it takes an overly bright
video, even with most of hte lights turned off in the room. Just the light from
the monitor washes out the color of my shirt for instance.

I couldn't remember which model I had and so downloaded software and
drivers for the Pro 5000 model at first, and saw that it was possible to
adjust camera brightness etc. But of course my 4000 wouldn't work with
the 5000 software. So, deleted that and downloaded the correct software.
But can't find any way to adjust the brightness.

Any ideas?

XP sp3, ASUS board that I'm plugging the sb2 from the camera into.

Thanks!!

Which of these three Bios settings should I be using for a SATA drive?
1.) 4P(IDE)+2S(IDE)
2.) 4P(IDE)+2S(RAID)
3.) 4P(IDE)+2S(AHCI)

See screenshot of these BIOS settings here, http://viewmorepics.myspace.com/ind...dID=75594228&albumID=2645700&imageID=42626260
 

A:Which of these three Bios settings should I be using for a SATA drive?

depends on the OS that you are booting to.
1 or 2 for xp and 3 for vista.

A:CMOS settings wrong F1 to run setup

Does it happen to say anything more specific? Like which CMOS setting is wrong? Some computer complain even when you change the peripherals like remove a PS/2 mouse.

What if you actually press F1, load the defaults in there and save the settings? There may be several kinds of defaults you can load.

If it still keeps forgetting the settings even after replacing the battery (with a new one I hope (and the new battery is the right type and is making contact)), then it may be the motherboard that has gone bad. Not much you can do about that.

Maybe try updating the system BIOS in the very unlikely case that it is some BIOS glitch that corrupts the settings..

I have a colleague, who can turn on his laptop (IBM), get a wireless connection, log into our company network, and receive full access to all of his network drives.

Yet I have another colleague, who turns on his laptop (IBM), gets a wireless connection, logs into the same company network, yet only receives partial network drive connectivity. He must then log into the network again to receive the rest of his network drives.

Both people are using Windows XP, Service Pack 2, and Novell 4.91 service pack 2. Is there a setting or switch that can be changed to allow the second individual to only have to log into the network once to obtain full access to all network drives like the first individual can?

Any help will be appreciated. Thank you.

A:Cheapest video card I can get to completely max out video settings in WoW?

WoW doesn't take much power. My friend plays it at full settings 50+ FPS on an Athlon 64 3200+, 8400GS combo at 1280x1024. I'd say go for a 9600GT. They're cheap, and they'll utterly slaughter WoW.

HD 4830 would get the job done even better if you can afford it. They go for about $130, if I remember correctly.

I hope I'm putting this in the right place and I know it's probably I really simplistic question, but here it is:

I have Comcast Cable internet via modem that connects to my DLink 4500 gaming router. I have a PC(wired) , Laptop (wireless), another PC(wired), and XBox360(wireless) all connected to the Cable internet and home network.

I was thinking about changing my Comcast mail to Outlook express -- is this a good Idea? Can it be done? If so how do I do it? If I do it will all my mail accounts go through Outlook or can I just do mine and not my son's and husband's? Sorry again if this is not the place, but I figured you're used to newbies not knowing where to post. Thanks
 

A:Comcast Mail to Outlook Express

Your Comcast email is known as a Webmail solution, while Outlook, Outlook Express
are Pop3 Email Clients.

All you need is to configure your Email Client to access the Postoffice @ Comcast;
you will actually still be able to use BOTH

The Comcast settings are here

I have 2 harddrives in my computer. Both have XP on them. I have been reading here several ways to set up the computer to boot to either harddrive. My question is, what are the jumper settings? Both Master? Both Slave? One master? One Slave? Or should they use the other 2 settings in some kind of order?
 

A:Booting to dual hardrives, jumper settings

On the older ATA sometimes called IDE Drives, they should be jumpered as CS
On Sata Drive, they are already automatically Master (ie no jumper)

I have an E6400. In the BIOS under CPU features it has 6 different ones.
Thermal control
Limit CPU ID Max Value
C1E Function
Execute disable Bit
Virtualization Tech
EIST Function

I just bought an E8400 which I have to RMA as the temp sensor is stuck on 103C. One thing I noticed when first setting it up was the Virtualization Tech and EIST function were missing.. I was just curious if anyone knows if they are unavailable in the 45's or if it was a part of this CPU's issues. Thanks. Specs in profile.
 

A:Question About E8400 Settings

That may be a bios issue. Have you tried a different bios version? My brother has that cpu and he was able to tinker with those options, its not a 45nm issue.

A:Failed to Query TCP/IP Settings of the Connection

So you actually have a FireWire network there? Or are you trying to set up ethernet?

Instead of using the silly wizard, right-click the network connection and see its properties. Make sure you have the TCP/IP protocol installed and enabled. See that the IP onfiguration is correct.
