You will need to press F8 while the pc is booting up and then a menu option will be available, choose safe mode and then when all the drivers have loaded, choose the administartor account then go to accesories>system tools>system restore, then choose a date to before the last update was installed.

The pc will then reboot and should start as normal without the last update you installed.

Windows xp driver updates


No more updates for XP, Microsoft will channel you to upgrade, from their website. A driver update app will tell you what's out of date, but will cost you, remember Bill keeps everything locked close to his wallet.

Am trying to download Office 2010,but the comp. tells me I am not running the XP sp3. How do I fix this ? My comp. does automatic updates.


Manually install the updates by going to the Microsoft Update website. Click start, select all programs, and select Windows update. Allow the updates to download and install. Continue to update until all have been installed. You may have to return to the update page several times before Service Pack 3 can be downloaded and installed.

Installed new windows 7 and our Documax A3300 will not print invoices


well thats because the driver is missing or isnt compitable with windows 7,, to verify this right click on computer, click properties and then device manager,, you will notice that there are a few (at least 1) device with a yellow highlight Or unknown Device ,, that means that the driver isnt installed or isnt compatible with windows 7, Now There is a chance it can be fixed and this involves using the windows up date software..

Click Start, then windows Updates, Check for updates and Install All UPDATES INCLUDING Optional Ones.. The drivers are found in the Optional Updates..

Of you can contact the manufacturer of the Matrix Printer and Inquire If They Have A windows 7 or windows Vista Driver (Windows Vista Drivers Do Work in win 7 "Most Of The Time") and you can get it from them,,

I did check their website for it

http://www.amtdatasouth.com/support-1/downloads/drivers/

but did not find a windows 7 driver (Its possible I might have missed it Please feel free to check),, so your best best is the windows Updates Or Contacting Them..

Here is there contact Info

I purchased A HCL branded Windows XP Home edition with SP1 during the year 2004. Till now I have not used much. Due to development in software the latest version of antivirus could not be loaded. Hence...


First I'd try booting the PC, as its booting press the F8 key several times. This, with luck, will offer several boot options. Choose Safe mode. (A stripped out version of windows)

Assuming it boots into safe mode, Click on start - all programmes - Accessories - System Tools - System restore.

Restore to a date prior to the SP2 installation.

If all that works, update by going through the windows update software - Start - All Programmes - Windows update.

That will update your o's to SP3.

Failing that, without a copy of windows you're a bit stuck.

However, if you are stuck and don't want to pay again for an operating system, you could download and install "Ubuntu" for free. Its a linux based operating system. Just Google Ubuntu, all instructions are on the web page.

Mine isnt telling me where to turn at all


make sure the gps in not muted. check the mute on and the sound turned up on the map screen and also check the sound in the options/system/ sound, if they are both ok and the try a hard reset 1st..turn the gps on then locate the little pin hole on the side, using a paper clip, push reset....if that fails, try the 2.18 update if you havent already. READ UPDATE INFO BEFORE UPDATING,VERY IMPORTANT

updates for any magellan can be found HERE
but read below first before getting the update

i cant stress enough that patients is a must here. this update is huge 1.75GB takes atleast 30 - 60 minutes depending on your system.

follow the instructions below whether you have updated your gps already or not!

There are few ways to solve this problem. i assume you installed the 2.18 update for the 3100 and assuming you tried the reset already, try and run the update again and follow the directions to the letter..make sure the battery is fully charged (i also keep mine plugged in if the update doesnt say not to) and do not try and run the update across a network. this update is huge 1.75GB and can take an hour or so depending on the computer..do not interrupt the update process. if you do not have the 2.18 update read me file, i can try and post it here, but its in PDF and dont think i can post that

if all else fails, magellan will fix or replace for free any of there gps that were rendered inoperable due to one of there updates.

either solution will work but magellans going to tell you to run the update again anyway before sending it back.

i gave you the 2 easyest ways to fix it,but
there are other ways to get it running again, but if your not comfortable copying and moving files...youll make it even worst then it is.

hope this helps.

Installing the downloads in xp home edition


The only thing that comes to mind is you have some antiviirus/firewall software that will not allow it to load.
Depending on what type is is it can be blocking it without telling you or allowing you to pass the program.
This is a common issue with this type of software.
you can disable it but how depends on what it is.
if you can disable it then run the update manually.
