Default Computer's on the blink!!

If any one can help - all offers gratefully appreciated and accepted!

My computer is feeling pretty sick at the moment - I have no idea what is wrong - I keep getting "error 424 - object required" about 5 mins after I have switched it on and nothing not even ctrl alt delete will get rid of it so have to switch off at base unit.

Does anyone have any idea what this means?

Also while Im here my keyboard wont do caps and all those other keys that need the shift button pressed down?

Im getting desperate as now its only at work that I can come onto this site!!

Thanks guys.

regards

According to Microsoft:

SYMPTOMS
When you create a Microsoft Outlook e-mail message, you may receive the following error message:

Runtime error 424 - Object Required

This error occurs if the following conditions are true:

You are using Microsoft Word as your e-mail editor.
Word is using a template to create the e-mail message.
The template contains a macro that uses the Count properties of the Shapes Collection.
ActiveDocument.Shapes.Count
CAUSE
This problem occurs because when you use Word to create an e-mail message and then close Word, Outlook still contains a reference to Word in memory. When you create a second e-mail message, and then you try to programmatically get the Count properties of the Shapes Collection for the second document, the procedure fails.

This problem has been reproduced by using Microsoft VC Automation, Microsoft Visual Basic ActiveX DLLs, Microsoft Visual Basic ActiveX EXEs and Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications (VBA).
RESOLUTION
A supported fix is now available from Microsoft, but it is only intended to correct the problem described in this article. Only apply it to systems that are experiencing this specific problem. This fix may receive additional testing to further ensure product quality. Therefore, if you are not severely affected by this problem, Microsoft recommends that you wait for the next Microsoft Word 97 Service Pack that contains this fix.

To resolve this problem immediately, contact Microsoft Product Support Services to obtain the fix. For a complete list of Microsoft Product Support Services phone numbers and information about support costs, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
http://support.microsoft.com/default...EN-US;CNTACTMS

Note In special cases, charges that are ordinarily incurred for support calls may be canceled if a Microsoft Support Professional determines that a specific update will resolve your problem. The usual support costs will apply to additional support questions and issues that do not qualify for the specific update in question. The English version of this fix has the file attributes (or later) that are listed in the following table. The dates and times for these files are listed in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). When you view the file information, it is converted to local time. To find the difference between UTC and local time, use the Time Zone tab in the Date and Time tool in Control Panel.
Date Time Version Size File name
------------------------------------------------------
24-Nov-1999 00:02 8.0.0.7123 5,333,264 Winword.exe
24-Nov-1999 00:02 8.0.0.7123 1,158,416 Wwintl32.dll



Alternate answer:

SUMMARY
When you attempt to open a form in the Microsoft Exchange client that has been extended in 16-bit Visual Basic 4.0 to access an external Microsoft Access database, you receive the following error:

Runtime error - object error 424
NOTE: This error does not occur on the computer used to design the form.

This problem is resolved if you install the Microsoft Exchange Server Forms Designer or Visual Basic on that client computer. This is because the DLLs required for accessing the Microsoft Access database need to be copied and registered to work correctly. Merely specifying the copied DLL in the form's .cfg file does not register the DLL correctly. The process of installing the Microsoft Exchange Server Forms Designer or Visual Basic does this during the Setup process.
MORE INFORMATION
The Dao2516.dll file cannot be copied over to the computer and be registered correctly. To correctly register it, you must do the following:
Have all the necessary DLLs copied over to the computer, by using the .cfg file.
Copy over the Regsvr.exe file, or run it with the following command-line switch:
REGSVR DAO2516.DLL


This command registers the DLL correctly; after doing this the form will not give the runtime error.
NOTE: To correctly register the Dao2516.dll file you must also have all of its supporting files on the client computer. The following files also needed for the registration process to work correctly:
Vaen21.olb
Msajt200.dll
Msjeterr.dll
Msjetint.dll
Vbajet.dll
Vbdb16.dll


You must decide when and how to run Regsvr.exe to register the DLL. Running Regsvr.exe is the only way to register the DLL short of installing an application that runs the Setup Wizard, and in turn registers Dao2516.dll.

So, is it Outlook or Access that's causing the prob?

Bl**dy Hell!!

I havnt got a scooby doo!!

All I did was switch on the computer last week and this message appeared and mouse wouldnt work, nothing would work.

Never use outlook - whats access?

Only use microsoft works for typing (very rare)
Internet Explorer - AOL for internet

Unless my dopey other half has downloaded something without telling me - (probably porn!! although what that has to do with outlook and "access" I have no idea.

Then again I must be dopey for not knowing what to do!!

I will print out what you have posted just in case - but I think need more in case thats not the problem. Have a 1 year warranty on it so will take it down to PC world!! to get fixed had hoped I could just do it myself - however probably best not too!

thanks for your response and if you can help brilliant if you cant thank you for at least trying.

God bless ya

Nope - that's all Microsoft have to say on the matter of error 424. Have you run a virus scan with up to date virus definitions loaded?

P.S. if you DO have any porn on the computer, make sure you get it off before taking it to PC World... look what happened to GG!! They're nosey bastards!

I are, aren't I? I'm so sharp I'll have to be careful not to cut myself (as my ol' granny used to say. I think she spotted me for a smart-arse even at a young age!)
