Customer Question
I received a used...

I received a used laptop with only 1 gig memory. Can I run anything newer than Windows Xperia on it

Technician's Assistant: What's the brand/model and version of Windows of your laptop?

Toshiba satellite T2300 1.66 GUs. It has Xperia now but I can't get IE to work

Technician's Assistant: What have you tried so far with your Satellite? Have you installed any updates recently?

Yes, 97 windows updated yesterday, but then I uninstalled Opera, whatever that is....now it's messed up for sure!!!

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Computer Expert to know before I connect you?

It has XP installed, the 97 was the count of windows elements which updated successfully.

When I open Windows update in IE, it says I need to install an Active X control, but all the ones in the add on manager are already enabled.

Can you provide me with any options? Is there a way to resolve the missing active X controls?
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I can't get Windows updates without it functioning.
Tech Support Specialist: UranIT, Network Administrator replied 8 months ago

You need to install latest IE software. which is not available on XP or 98. its available on Windows 7 , 8 and 10.

And you might want to upgrade the memory to 2GB

One Happy CustomerNew York

I am very happy with my very fast response. Eric is very knowledgeable in the subject area. Thank you!

RPAustin, TX

Hi John, Thank you for your expertise and, more important, for your kindness because they make me, almost, look forward to my next computer problem. After the next problem comes, I'll be delighted to correspond again with you. I'm told that I excel at programing. But system administration has never been one of my talents. So it's great to have an expert to rely on when the computer decides to stump me. God bless, Bill
