      IE 11 copy/paste problem

      It has come to our attention that people using Internet Explorer 11 (IE 11) are having trouble with copy/paste to the forum. If you encounter this problem, using a different browser like Firefox or Chrome seems to get around the problem. We do not know what the problem is, but it seems to be specific to IE 11 and we are hopeful that Microsoft will eventually fix it.

Did you look in hardware manager and see if there are any :!: If so you may need to get XP drivers for your hardware. If the hardware is not listed then do a "add new hardware" from the control panel and see if the OS will pick up your equipment. Another option would be to remove your sound device in the hardware manager even if it is listed and looks ok and reboot. I suggest that you obtain current XP drivers and have them in a directory on your hard drive so that when you reboot and the system says that it found new hardware you can specify where you want the drivers to be loaded from. Of course I would first make sure that your bios was up to date before proceeding with any of the above steps, and make sure that you temporarily disable your anti-virus program if installing new drivers. Of course, if you don't really need anything that was on there being that you just picked up the laptop, it is always a good idea to format the hard drive and do a fresh install of XP- your choice though. Good luck.
