Windows professional 2000 system. I want to leave as an emergency backup as hardware seems ok. Office applicstions(2000 version) run. 2 drawbacks one the video card just shows 16 colors and 2 it has a Belkin connector ( for remote wifi)but I have no idea where the Cd with drivers is. I think I should start by finding the Belkin driver. Can I copy into an USB and try to make it work ? After that would come trying to download drivers for Video card. Am I correct in my approach and can you assist? Thanks

Thank you very much for giving us an opportunity to help you. I am Jins here to assist you. You can find the driver for Network Card from the CD or from Internet and copy it to a USB Disk, then connect the USB disk to the Windows 2000 system and install the driver. After that you can connect that system to internet and download and install the drivers needed.

Let me know if you need any more help regarding this.

Regards

Jins

I'm talking about the Belkin remote to connect to Wifi
Tech Support Specialist: Jins M. N., Computer Support Specialist replied 21 days ago

Did you installed the Wireless adapter driver on your sony vaio? You need to install Wireless card driver before connecting to WiFi.

Good morning I have the drivers on an USB. But the installer wants an .inf file. I have the driver. But the installer does not read it. What can I do thanks
Customer reply replied 15 days ago
I can't connect to the internet
Tech Support Specialist: Jins M. N., Computer Support Specialist replied 15 days ago

Can you please let me know which inf file it asks for? Please let me know the model details of Sony Vaio also.

Actually the machine froze and had other problems( no video or sound). So I restored from original disks but have not retried using the Belkin connector. Vaio is model Pcg Fx120 and now doesn't freeze but can you go into a step by step procedure: e.g. Insert USB then insert connector when plug play menu comes up do this etc? To make it easier ?

Good evening I was wondering if you had a response on this?
Tech Support Specialist: Jins M. N., Computer Support Specialist replied 7 days ago

Did you installed the network card driver? Hold down the windows logo key on your keyboard and press R key. You will get open Run command box. Type devmgmt.msc in the run box and press Enter. You will get open the device manager window. Let me know if there is yellow ? marks on any devices listed.

I try to install by pointing to the drivers I downloaded per your instructions ; it says "click the program you want to use to open DP WLAN Wifi 18033.7z If the program is not listed click other"
Customer reply replied 1 day ago
Am I in the right menu shouldn't this install automatically w/0 asking for a program?
Customer reply replied 1 day ago
The installer keeps asking for an .inf file but there is no way to access an .inf file at least in the file you told me to download
Customer reply replied 1 day ago
Btw devmgmt.msc in Run does not open the device manager window
Tech Support Specialist: Jins M. N., Computer Support Specialist replied 1 day ago

Click Here and Download 7Zip program. Install it on your system. Then Right click on the DP WLAN Wifi 18033.7z and extract it. Look for a setup file and use it to install the driver.

I can copy this to a flash drive? I have a computer with Wunzip extractor but not sure if the old Vaio has an extractor too. What is the best way of doing this so the Vaio can access the right setup file?
Tech Support Specialist: Jins M. N., Computer Support Specialist replied 1 day ago

Yes, you can copy it to flash drive and install from it on the viao. Some versions of Winzip cant extract 7zip files.

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
