Ok, the other day, someone gave me a really good desktop. Its Dell Dimension 4600 with a dvd rom and cd burner. It was loaded with viruses, however, and I spent a while reformatting and wiping out everything to make it run like new again. I reinstalled all the drivers, etc. The only thing is, I am still having 2 problems. The first one is that whenever I try to connect to the Internet, I get error message number 711 that says "this computer is not configured to connect you to the internet," or something like that. I went to Microsoft's web page and it said that this happens if you had to reinstall Windows XP Home, then upgraded to XP Pro. It mentioned something about fixing the registry. I'm not sure if this is the problem, but I'd appreciate some help with it. Thanks.
Secondly, my speakers were working fine with my other computer, but I can't get any sound out of this one. I'm not sure if I have a sound card installed or not. Can anyone help me get through these hurdles, because I think the computer istself is really good. Thank you so much in advance!
