YOUR CAMERA MAY NOT BE CONNECTED? IF IT IS CONNECTED, THAN CLICK ON START, TYPE IN HP IMAGE ZONE, CLICK ON THAT PROGRAM GO TO PROPERTIES AND UPDATE YOUR SOFTWARE.

YOU MAY HAVE TO UN-INSTALL YOUR SOFTWARE FOR HP IMAGE ZONE...ONLY IF YOU HAVE THE DISK...THEN RE-INTSTALL AGAIN? WHEN UN-INSTALLING YOU WILL NEED TO UN-INSTALL ALL FILES SO SAVE YOUR PIC'S ELSEWHERE ON YOUR COMPUTER BEFORE UN-INSTALLING!

IF SO...MAKE SURE YOU SAVE YOUR PIC'S IN YOUR DOCUMENTS OR ON YOUR DESKTOP IN A ZIP FILE, SO NOT TOO LOSE THEM.

PLEASE MAKE SURE YOUR CAMERA IS NOT HOOKED UP TO YOU COMPUTER WHILE INSTALLING SOFTWARE FOR YOU HP IMAGE ZONE!

SOFTWARE HAS TO BE INSTALLED FIRST!

THEN SHUT DOWN YOUR COMPUTER, HOOK YOUR CAMERA UP TO YOUR COMPUTER, TURN COMPUTER BACK ON...IF THE COMPUTER DOESN'T RECOGNIZE OR DETECT THE HARDWARE FOR THE CAMERA, THEN YOU'LL HAVE TO GO INTO YOUR COMPUTER AT THE START BUTTON AND GO TO INSTALL HARDWARE!

IF YOU HAVE THE DISK, YOU CAN ALSO TRY JUST PUTTING IT IN YOUR HARD-DRIVE AND IT WILL GIVE YOU OPTIONS OF UPDATING ETC,.

HOPE THIS HELPS!

This can be easily changed.Windows XP
  • Right Click "My Computer"
  • Click Properties
  • Click Hardware tab
  • Click "Device Manager"
  • Locate the CD/DVD drive and right click on it (may have to expand CD/DVD top level to get to drive [+] sign, click properties
  • Click on Region Tab and select the correct country or just pick one that falls under region 2
Windows Vista/7 Pretty much the same steps except the first couple are different
  • Right Click on Computer and select properties
  • Click on "Device Manager" in the left pane
  • Follow the rest of the step from above.

Check the power cables if it is working properly.
See if your AVR didn't blow a fuse or the switch is working and the led light are lighted or is powered on.
Test your pc's switch if it is still established contact and not unpluged from *********** board and is working properly.
Test your power supply by unpluging all plugs that is connected to your motherboard and try to short out, the green and black wire from pin 4 and 5 see picture below. Just put a small length wire at pin 4 and five and you'll be able to know if it is working just fine.

Connect it to your computer again if it is working properly.
Press the power switch.
If it still is not working, try to disassemble your processor, then press the power switch.
If it still did'nt work or still doesent turn on, then your motherboard is the broblem and needs to be replaced. Have a nice day friend, and hope this could help you analyze.

Hi NoMamasTomas...
Yes your computer can have wireless as long as you have a wireless modem hooked up to your main computer
A wireless card that will work for your Windows Me machine is made by SMC.
I am sure there are others that will work in your computer also but I have this type sitting on my desk at this very moment.
So I will give you the website to look at a couple of ones.
Please take time to rate me

Missing critical files? Re-install your OS. You should have a boot disc. Put it in, and boot from that drive.

I think you have a problem with the PSU here. In the interests of safety, I would be inclined to remove it and take it to an electrician for checking (PATS test). I recall that this PSU on this particular desktop is of the non -switched variety (powers directly from mains with no on / off switch). These were never the most robust power supplies and I have a feeling that one of the main capacitors is going bad.
