outlook express 6 trouble shooting

Q: outlook express 6 trouble shooting

error message > address book data file C: document setting corrupt, can not use .... I am unable to set up an account and receive mail without these files. It suggests I reinstall but I do not have any back up files since it came already installed on the computer.
I was given this laptop and using it with my DSL connection for my PC desktop ... it has Windows XP and IE 8 installed. Is there any way to correct the missing or corrupt files so I can use the mail server?

Preferred Solution: outlook express 6 trouble shooting

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I know that there is something wrong with my computer cuz the error sound comes up but never any message if any one knows what is happening or has had this problem im in need of desperate help.

A:trouble shooting

There is not enough information in your statement to discern what the problem is. Are there any error messages? How do you know it's an "error" sound? Is your computer running badly, what happens just before this sound and what happens directly after it? Go to Start/Run and type eventvwr.msc and press enter. Click on Application, and System on the Left side, scroll down and see if any instances have a Red X. If so, double click it and post the results here.

Hi to all members. I am a newbie at Techspot but have some experience with IT hardware and software.

Have been having problems with my PC - first noted file corruption (caused by some hardware fault - not software or malware). Chkdsk revealed bad clusters but later scans showed hard drive 100% in good state. Tested RAM and also found no problems. Physically cleaned PC hardware, checked component seating - found PSU fan damaged and replaced whole PSU. Possibly overheating cooked some other component. I also change IDE cable.

Now system is more stable but I am getting random BSODs on shutdown and I probably something is still wrong. My prime suspicion is that the mainboard has a fault................

Attached is system info and dump from latest BSOD on shutdown.
Would appreciate some guidance.

But I got a note from someone else with the same problem.He was able to fix it with system restore .I have been 3 weeks trying to figure this out.I am wondering if I can use the restore disks to fix the regestry with out loosing all my data files.

The other day out of no where my computer froze. Tried to reboot and would not load windows. Ran start up repair and after 60 hours windows could not repair it. Tried to reinstall windows the hard drive would not show up, it was detected in bios but would not show up to install windows.

I ordered a new hard drive.

Installed the hard drive, after many problems some my fault some random windows errors windows finally installed. Started loading drivers. Had most of them installed and had to do something else, turned computer off.

When I cane back windows could not load. Reinstalled again. Installed drivers again rebooted several times in the process. Computer was "laggy" so I rebooted again. Wouldn't boot. Went to reinstall windows again. Windows says the hard drive is going to fail soon and will not install on that drive. (this is a brand new drive.)

Used a Ubuntu flash drive to check memory. All 4 first time. There was an error on test 7. Pulled one checked again same errors. Went through pulling each one then put them in one by one testing memory one module at a time. All 4 have errors on test 7.

I assume the mother board is the only option?

Motherboard = an old 770ta-ud3

A:Outlook Express Trouble

The best thing to do if you know all your settings, i.e password, mail servers etc is to delete and recreate the account in Outlook Express. To do this, please follow these instructions:

- In Outlook Express, click Tools then Accounts then the Mail tab
- Select the account which is causing you problems then click Remove/Delete, you will be prompted to confirm deletion, click Yes/OK
- Then click Add then Mail. You will then be prompted for the following information:
Display name: this is the name that appears in the from field on your outgoing mail - click Next
Email address: type the full email address here - click Next
Mail servers: type the addresses of both the incoming and outgoing mail servers here and choose the account type, default is POP3 - click Next
Account name: this is usually the first part of your email address before the @ sign....but some ISP's require the full address, if in doubt, call your ISP
Password: type your usual password here (both the account name and password are case sensitive so make sure you enter the correct case) - Click Next
- Click Finish
- Under the Mail tab, highlight the account and then click Properties
- Make sure nothing is selected in the Connection tab, if something is ticked, untick it
- Click Apply then OK
- Click Close on the internet accounts box
- Try sending a test email to test the settings

However if it is not a persistent error I would ignore it. The issue is probably due to problems connecting or downloading from the server. If you continue to have problems try emptying the inbox at your web mail hosts location.

Howdy,
I am having problems with OutLook Express 6.

Yesterday after I checked for mail I opened the sent items folder. I proceeded to delete old e-mails.

After deleting about 20 or so the delete function froze. I could no longer delete. I clicked on the delete tab several times and the cursor arrow turned into an hour glass.

I tried to close the application, but I could not. The best I could do was minimize to the lower tray.

When I returned to the web site I was on before checking my mail things slowed to a crawl.

I logged off the Internet but the "sent items" was still in my bottom tray. The only way I was able to get rid of it was to re-start my computer.

I went through this scenario 4 or 5 times. I let it rest, however the same thing is happening today.

A window popped up and said the program is not responding. (while in OutLook) I clicked the option to return to windows, but all that did is bring me back to the screen I see before logging onto the Internet.

The only difference I am still logged on and the "sent items" along with as in this case "bleeping computer" are in the bottom tray.

I hope I am making some sort of sense. If I can make things more clear please ask and I will get right on it.

( Windows XP Home, SP2, IE 7)
Thank You for your time.

EDIT: Update. I just clicked on the "Sent Items" tab in my bottom tray and it is now operating normally. I am able to delete old e-mails. I am confused.

If you have that problem deleting emails again Dennis H try this,Go to the File menu in OE,select work offline.Then go to the View menu/layout/deselect preview pane. Now select the message and delete it.Restore your settings when it has gone. If that doesn't work, try booting to safe mode, and then deleting it.This is a really good read about File Corruption in Outlook Express.

When I receive an e-mail that has an URL in blue/underlined, and I click on it to go there, nothing happens. It has been working until the last couple of weeks. The only changes I've made was that I downloaded Internet Explorer 7 but didn't like it, removed it and downloaded IE 6 again and I'm running it. I don't know if this has any bearing on the problem or if this is when the problem started since I don't use this function often. Any help in restoring this function will be greatly appreciated. I'll be away from my computer for a few days starting Tuesday.
Bob T

Just a hypothetical question with regards to troubleshooting internet connectivity.

Considering all but one computer in a network are able to access the internet. Is it possible for the faulty computer to be able to successfully ping the network's default gateway and still NOT be able to access the internet??

Is it even possible. I think, no. what do you guys think?

Hi

Yes it is possible, especially if the TCP/IP stack is faulty or the winsock is corrupted, some adaware.malware can cause this to happen.

Hi! Cannonball here!

I am trying to install Office XP Pro Upgrade. Dell Dimension came with Win XP and Office XP Small Business. Need PowerPoint and Access, so bought the upgrade pkg. Box says what I have is a qualifying product. When I try to install, it searches for qualifying product and comes back with message "Can't find qualifying product". How can I get thru this to a successful, upgrade installation?

Have wasted several days bouncing between Dell and MS support sites to no progress. HELLLP! Tried to search, but got one message on time delay or some such????

Thanks very much!

Top 10 tips for troubleshooting PC system slowdowns June 3, 2002 Deb Shinder

User complaints are minimal when new PCs are rolled out. They start up quick, and programs seem to open in a snap. But over time, users' systems can slow down or hang up often. While the possibilities for system slowdowns are endless, I have identified 10 common troubleshooting areas you should examine before you suggest an upgrade.

1. Processor overheating
Modern processors generate a lot of heat. That's why all processors require some sort of cooling element, typically a fan of some type. When the processor temperature goes over spec, the system can slow down or run erratically. The processor fan may fail for several reasons:
* Dust is preventing the fan from spinning smoothly.
* The fan motor has failed.
* The fan bearings are loose and "jiggling."

Often you can tell if there is a fan problem by listening and/or touching the computer. A fan that has loose bearings starts jiggling and vibrates the case, making a characteristic noise. You may barely notice the noise at first, and it's common for even the experienced computer pro to overlook this change. But as time goes by, the sounds and vibrations will become so prominent tha...
