Question about Northgate STAC2217L (Bundle) PC Desktop

1 Answer

Files missing On my system tools, all that will come up is 1)security center and 2)Internet Exp. I have an HP printer and have called HP and also Northgate techs and neither were able to help after having spent hours on the phone with them. HP said it was windows files that were missing and Microsoft said it was HP files that were missing. Does the Recover XP disk that came with my Northgate computer STAC2217L have the option to repair without reformatting, or just to reformat? I have always had HP's before and loved their repair/recovery disks, but have been told that Northgate's is not as easy to use. Are there any codes I would need other than the XP Product Key and the systems OEM numbers in order to use the recovery disk or the repair part of it? I have been able to use this machine even tho it doesn't let me do all I want to on it, so any help will be greatly appreciated.

    I have done it many times and I did print it out to be sure I was typing in the right thing. I must have more missing than I thought. What do I do next?

Bring up a command prompt and in the window type SFC /scannow
When that is done it will tell you if there are files missing and whether it was able to repair them.

Since you have the XP licence key, try to get hold of an XP install CD and do a repair installation, using your own key when asked for it.

I just Googled modem drivers and came up with several. Among them were driverforum.com and driverguide.com where people will send you files you need. If your machine has the same kind of modem that mine came out with it is a HSP56 MR by PCtel.Inc. I use Belarc Adivsor to tell me what all the files are on my computer and it said that was my modem. If I can find my modem drivers i would be willing to email them to you. I have no paper manual except the Motherboard one that came with this machine. It is a SYNTAX S651M www.syntaxusa.com .

I get this massage when i start use msn games ActiveX Objects Missing 2 Messenger games require ActiveX objects in order to play. Please verify that you have the ability to install ActiveX objects...


That usually indicates some settings in your Internet Options have been changed in your security settings, and it is blocking the installation of Active X add ins for your Browser.

With your Internet Explorer open, click on TOOLS > Internet Options.
Click on the Tab Security.
The Icon for Internet should be highlighted.
Look for a button " Restore Defaults" and click on it. Then click on the Apply Button.
Then click on the Tab General and Click on the Delete button in the center of the screen.
Delete the Cookies and Temporary Internet Files

Close Internet Explorer, and reopen it.

Try your games again and see if it prompts you to install the Active X add ins it needs to run the games.

If you need to reply, use the "add a comment" link.

2 download drivers hp's official website, here is the link, you just have to choose your operating system and download the complete driver.
