  1. I need some help, my laptop was working OK (internet, screen etc) earlier. I formatted the drive & installed Win 2000, now internet doesn't work (connection icon disappeared), also the display screen is half the laptop screen, rest is black.
    Any idea how to fix it?

    Thanks in advance.

    Hello and welcome to Techspot.

    You need to download and install Windows 2000 compatible drivers from your laptop manufacturers website.

    Lan drivers I assume. You`ll need to download and install several drivers. What is the make and model of your laptop?

    Regards Howard :)
