    Call that sleeping ? More like hibernation if you ask me :) What exactly do you mean when you say it doesn`t work.What happens when you click on the IE icon ? Does it work from the start menu ? Does it work from C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer(Double-click IExplore.exe)

    hibernation

    The IE file is corrupted. I have been on the phone with both Verizon and Dell. I've released, renewed, ipconfiged just about everything. The IE icon does nothing. I cannot even ping on my desktop. The laptop works fine. The both have Windows XP home, but the desktop came with disks which I have already tried to restore IE. The laptop came w/o disks but only the suggestion to restore if anything went wrong. I already restored to the earliest point on the desktop. Any other suggestions, like how can I get IE off the laptop, or install a different browser? The desktop will NOT go online. Thanks, Tish
    P.S. I like to sleep

    Download this http://www.mozilla.com/firefox/ to laptop.Copy to desktop.You might be able to download another IE.BTW,in future use Firefox as your main browser.I suppose you could download IE To your laptop,as well.

    this should help

    http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?kbid=318378
    This will allow you to repair ie and outlook express (if needed)
    IF you still have issues post what youve done to trouble shoot.
    If you are having issues getting an IP then IE is not your issue. You could have a network card problem.
    Give us a little more specific info for what you did with Ipconfig and such.

    Thanks

    http://www.opera.com/download/

    Use that browser, it's way better than IE.

    I have Mozilla, Mozilla FireFox, Netscape, IE and Opera and Opera is my favourite out of all these at the moment. The best thing about it is that you can set it to automatically remeber the sites when you close it, so that they come up again automatically the next time you start Opera.
