I have a Dell D600 laptop running XP Pro.
When trying to boot up my laptop an error occurs stating Wireless Configuration...."Notification dll has not been registered, program will not work correctly" . After clicking "ok" the boot hangs without showing any desktop icons or access to any functions of the laptop. I tried to boot in safe mode but the boot hangs up again.
I am wondering if I can disable the wireless capabilities so I can access my work files and begin to backup my documents. I can worry about reloading the drivers, etc. at a later time but would at least like to return to work. Accessing the internet is important but at least I would like
I tried to run the system setup but I am novice at best and did not want to muddy the water any further. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I ran AdAware shortly before it starting acting funny. I am wondering if one of the "viruses" that were found (and subsequently deleted) were needed for the wireless device to work.
Again, I am looking to somehow disable the internal wireless so I am able to access my work files. Is there any way to do this using the setup (F2 on boot screen)? I found the page that shows my "Wireless Configuration"
Onboard Bluetooth: Not Installed
MiniPCI Devise: Wireless
MiniPCI Status: Enabled
Wireless Control: <Fn+F2>/Application
I was thinking to change the "MiniPCI Status" to Disabled and "Wireless" to OFF but it wont let me change the values. Any ideas?
As aforementioned, I am looking to get it to boot up so I can get some work files off. I can then try to fix the wireless issues.
