why are your using DELL any thing on any HP>??? so wrong that.
there is no free anything, (even lunch) for sure not any OS,
no OS stated btw, windows what? (guess at VISTA)
my guess is you want this old dog to run!
an 11 year old laptop.
HP does not sell HP media recovery kits for this old pc. (CD kits)
nor does Microsoft. now. (only w7 and 10)
this PC came with Citrix, OS or windows, VISTA 32 or 64.
Vista is now officially dead at MS, and at HP.(see exceptions)
HP does not sell vista disks, but the drivers are supported here.
as are manuals there, still there, lucky you after 11 years.
hint soon to be gone.! (10 year rule)

I bet you do not need or want any proxy server.
I bet you question really is how to get internet connected, right?
first off what OS is this, XP> we can not see you, your PC nor your OS. (whats connected to PC, nor if it has wifi options)
is this IE11 your browsers , cant guess that either,?

why not use an Ethernet, Lan cable CAT5/6 and plug in the PC to the router and it all works like magic,
that be first.
if the PCs lan jack (ethernet ) is dead. (and other PCs work on your router) do they./
then we go to device manager and look
see that? then see if the lan chip has driver.
network marked, red/yellow or unknown is bad.
if missing the get it from HP.

HP has zero support on old PCs, it's too old, its in fact 16 years old. support ended . 2007 (17-10 = x)
came with 10/100 Ethernet, new (spec sheet says)
slow. that is.
but what chip that is , is very hard to find out this old
why waste time and money on PC worth $5 used.?
it came with windows 2000 or XP new. which is it?
if the driver is good, or the unknown chip there, ethernet
the when you connect to the router the connection made automatically
then running relic old IE 6? you see proxy question
tell it no, and that sets automatic , gate way ip address to your router. and just works out of the gate.

install firefox v56 and its more easy.
to run and not get bogged down in proxy settings.
avoid IE versions below 11, as all OLD IE's, are virus magnets and zero support, use Firefox, on all old PCs, not updated to W7 !!!
IE = internet exploder browsers)

show just getting a connection, only. browsing is a whole other matter, and 20 browsers free are common.

Hello there
1) You got a driver or device problem,
2) use the drivers that cam with your f700 particulary these ones, 1) video card 2) sound card (sometimes if driver is bad, it can cause these problems)
3) RAM problems, to isolate the problem, if you have the expertise take ount one ram module at a time and turn on the computer. see if these helps!

Why are you worried about this? You are getting a warning that the hard drive is about to die. In your place, I would copy any data I wanted to keep to the desktop and then replace the hard drive.
You can then image the original drive to the new one and try the restore again.
The Panther\unattend.xml file is created and Windows uses it during the restore process in order to know what to do, copying it from another computer (if you can find one) would probably totally mess up the installation. The reason it cannot be parsed is probably because it was created on a section of the hard drive that has already failed - remember, your hard drive is dying.

why not ask them,
or other around you obviously using that.

try to know, that each place you go they have rules.
there are less wide open ad hoc networks now.
do to folks doing ******* things there and the owner can be liable.

first is range, its a weak radio, and if too far it cant work
or is slow.
you will need a password to get in. in most places here.
at 1 air port, its password
and my other air port ,they let you in PW free, but you must sign a page that tell them you dont break the rules
that filters all your cruising, (has huge blocking of vast URL)
that is the way of the future, blocks, rules and sign in PW.
at one air port the password is on all vertical pillar in the air port.
clear as day.
UPS requires and account, all do. l get one, use it.
unless doing tracking blind. sure.

again next time at XRAY (a store, or whatever)
ask them, learn to talk, walk to the counter, and say
can i use your wifi, and how do I
they will say , the SSID, the SSID is the wifi broadcasted name.
you click that and enter a pasword

most places do not run AD HOC now, sorry, but those days are shinking fast, the golden days of no rules. are over.

There are a few ways to solve this problem.
Firstly, turn the device off.
2. Make sure your headphones are plugged ALL the way in (you should hear a click sound)
3. Press the on/off button and the volume up button at the SAME TIME
4. Once the screen is on let the on/off button go

Depending upon what progra you are using, you can usually click on VIEW, then select ZOOM. Zoom in or out until you find the text size you need to use.

If you want to change ALL of Windows' text sizes, right-click somewhere on the desktop and select PERSONALIZE. Click, DISPLAY, then SET CUSTOM TEXT SIZE (DPI). Increase the percentage until you find a comfortable size to work with. You will perhaps need to reboot your computer after changing the text size.

Cancelling one item in your basket is a term that refers to online shopping.. It's not a computer question.
However, on most websites you can cancel items in your shopping cart/basket by highlighting the quantity (usually 1) of the item and typing a 0 (zero) to replace the 1 then click on "Update".

Press Fn + Num Lock/Lk
If the above doesn't, it means your keyboard is defective and needs to be replaced. To confirm this, connect an external usb keyboard to your computer and if it works, then of a truth, your keyboard needs to be replace.

Good luck.
