How to Downgrade BIOS from A06 to A04

I spent a few hours researching how to do this. It was not easy and I had a few false starts.
Aside from downloading the patch and making a DOS boot disk from a USB drive, there are a few pitfalls you want to avoid. They are all documented in this blogpost. Enjoy!

I just bought a HP webcam, downloaded this latest version of SKYPE and could not get it to work. Last night I spent over 2 hours with HP support. The problem resolution was that Skype 5.0 does not work with XP. HP support installed SKYPE V4.2.0.169 and got it working. Your download web page still says download new version...

thank you

error 7149 Quickbooks

Thanks, that worked! I first spent a half-hour on the phone with the non-tech support at Intuit and he walked me through that download. What the download does is update your original QB 2005 RC1 version to the RC9 version ("Release Candidate") where they've fixed some things (such as the Flash 7 install problem). Here's what we did:

1.) Removed Flash ActiveX 9 in Add/Remove Programs
2.) Downloaded webpatch from QB site (start here: http://www.quickbooks.com/Help...
3.) Closed QB (couldn't open it anyway)
4.) Installed patch.
5.) Restarted computer.
6.) QB worked!

Thanks for your postings. I hope this helps.

My Dell 922 AIO can't communicate with my computer, but only after updating from Windows updates. Before the update, there was an error message about dlbtjswx.exe. Any suggestions?

I just spent hours last week on this for my home computer... until I came across a fix on another thread. There is a 922AIO patch in the drivers section on Dell's website (I couldn't get the US patch to download correct so I ended up using the patch from the Dutch section of Dell's site - sounds goofy, but it worked!). The patch is for Vista, but it fixed my XP machine. Hope this helps you, it worked for me after much frustration in trying to find a solution.

The modem & internet lights on router are flashing orange. All other lights are solid blue. The Verizon DSL modem indicates it is working properly. Have re-set once. What do I do now?

Its your network that's causing connection problem!

1. Try to connect to your network after half an hour!

2. If the server is still busy, don't surf during peak hours! (surf @ night)

3. Change your ISP! (last solution)
