Registry losing Hardware
Running Windows XP SP2 on an older IBM Thinkpad...
Progressively over time, my the operating system is unable to locate
hardware. First it was my iPod (was able to fix that by finding an online
solution that provided registry information), then it "lost" my wireless
PCMCIA wifi card (though the software for the card indicates a "strong"
signal), then my digital camera was unrecognized, followed by my scanner
(though the printer, part of the same machine works fine. For now), and most
recently, the corded internet connection can't be found (though the
router/modem works fine--I have been using my Work computer at home)
All of this seems like registry based issues. I would go into the registry
to make sure everything is being directed properly, but I don't know what to
call all these various ports and such. It was easy with the iPod because I
just needed to enter the drive ("G:"), but I have no idea about the rest.
I will go to extremes to fix this! I tried "System Restore" but that didn't
Any suggestions appreciated! As of now, I am unable to download any
software to that computer...and the "Work" computer is a Mac, so I'm not sure
if I could put any down loads on a thumbdrive and transfer from one computer
